** Amusingly, peanuts aren't actually nuts, which puts an interesting spin on the traditional 'may contain nuts' warning. In particular "This product was made in a place that processes nuts and peanuts".* Because of regulations or lawsuit-related ass covering, in the US a lot of food products that obviously have a product in them (Peanut M&Ms have peanuts!) have this trope in action on their packaging. Like milk or cheese labeled "Contains Dairy product."

*** The British product Sun-Pat Peanut Butter, in a real headscratcher, now says 'peanut spread' on the packaging, and in the description, says 'contains absolutely no butter'. You wonder if they are marketing themselves to aliens.

Another form of the trope is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tautology_(rhetoric) tautology]], which is basically reusing synonyms to describe one another, e.g. "That gay person is a homosexual", or "A tautology is anything that is tautological."
