Stop Thief, Don't Eat those Nuts!

Thieves made a DUMB mistake! These dopes stole 660 pounds of hazelnuts. The problem is they’re full of hydrogen phosphate gas, used to extend shelf life, making them poisonous! German authorities have  warned them NOT to eat them; Reuters reports.

I find that HILARIOUS, but don’t let it distract you. Nuts are SUPER foods; pistachios lower cholesterol, nuts and seeds promote weight-loss, cashews make bones strong and almonds fight free radicals and reduce inflammation. Nuts, eat some!

Great, preserving food with poison. I may never eat hazelnuts again.

Are all nuts preserved this way? I read the article but couldn't tell if they were shelled or not. I wonder what they treat them with to remove the poisonous gas?
