Sneaky Chef No-Nut Butter is a Legume

It's great to see substitutes for things such as peanut butter however I was taken back by a product called "Sneaky Chef No-Nut Butter" that is shown on this site. What I'm taken back by is that I am allergic to peanuts. Peanuts are part of the legume family. Yellow Peas are also part of the legume family. "Sneaky Chef No-Nut Butter" says that instead of using peanuts it's using Yellow Peas. Yellow peas are related to Peanuts and this product could send me to the hospital.

Do others share my concern? I would like to hear from the manufacturer and other on this site.

Peanuts are part of the Legume Family and substituting Legumes for Peanuts seems dangerous.

I was thinking the same exact thing. My son is peanut and treenut allergic and is also allergic to peas. I assumed this was common and wondered who would chance this product. It's label is dangerous and misleading.
