No nuts in your own home? How can that be allowed?

Posted by   + Show Post

A friend of mine just told me that when she moved into her apartment one of the things that she was told from the manager is that she can't have peanut butter or any nuts products in her own home because her neighbor is deathly allergic. This neighbor of hers is an adult too. Can they really do that?

No, they can't really do that, unless it's in the lease.

ALmond butter is really yummy too, but I don't think that a peanut ban can be legally enforced!

I doubt it.  It's your neighbor's problem to manage not yours.  People with allergies are becoming whaco about demanding everyone else around them curtail their lives because of allergies.  I'd call a lawyer right away and just ask a question about this situation.

I can't imagine not having peanut butter in my house! My husband would be devastated, he loves peanut butter! I think it's a nice concept to want everyone to be safe and conscience of their neighbor but I don't think it's fair to ban nuts in ones own house.
