    The Food and Drug Administration is telling California-based Diamond Foods that they need to remove wording from their walnut packages that advertises the health benefits of the tasty nut.
    The FDA is merely giving them the option to either get that statement tested and proven as with all health related claims with drugs. Remove the insupportable claim from the packaging and good to go.

    I hope they start going after all the charlatan products out there in the supplement world. I don't think so though, I think this is a sacrificial whale to make a statement in the media that an underfunded and outmoded organization is still marginally relevant.

    Screw the FDA. I know where to find black walnuts in the wild.

    When nuts are outlawed, only outlaws will have nuts.

    Hmm... never considered it. They're quite a lot of work!

    Perhaps... perhaps...

    There's a reason they're called CRACK-a-damias

    Plant a tree -- plant several trees. In eight or ten years, you're good to go, and to heck with Peak Oil or the FDA or wondering if they've come from China full of pesticides, or wondering if somebody irradiated the tired nut-offerings for sale in supermarkets.

    Walnuts aren't really the best source of nuts anyway. Try to get macadamias.

    Ugh, is there a macadamia nut shortage or something? All the stores around here mysteriously stopped carrying them a couple of months ago. Whenever I ask the produce manager what gives they just shrug and tell me they'll order some. It's been MONTHS! >:C
