Don't eat those nuts, police warn thieves

BERLIN (Reuters) - Thieves who stole 660 pounds of hazelnuts in Germany
have been urgently warned not to eat them.

Hamburg police spokesman Holger Vehren said the sacks containing the
nuts were full of poisonous hydrogen phosphate gas, used to extend their
shelf life. The nuts must first be treated to make them safe for
consumption.

"We're looking for the perpetrators because they could face a very serious
health risk if they eat these hazelnuts," he said. "The gas is even lethal if
they inhale it."
