Not An Intended Use

I was puttering around the kitchen doing some general clean up and came across a can of Crisco. I was checking the label to see what it said about refrigeration and came across this sentence.

Not intended for use as a spread.

Apparently the Crisco people felt the need to add that statement to their label.

Was this a problem of which I was not aware? Are teens secretly spreading Crisco on their toast for a 'fat high'?

Are you a closet Crisco spreader?

I don't even have any in my house. Hydrogenated oils are the devil.

But even if I did... ewww. Can you imagine the slimy feel of that in your mouth?? I don't think you could put it on anything that could even disguise it enough to make it edible as a spread.

They make butter flavored Crisco, so I could see someone mistaking that as a spread.

Maybe since butter and shortening are interchangeable in a lot of recipes they thought they better clarify (pun intended) that it was only to be used after melted or cooked. Maybe somebody gagged on a spoonful...

Many years ago, when I was working in construction, I had a co-worker who use to eat a Crisco sandwich everyday for lunch. I have never had the gumption nor the nerve to try that one yet.
