Ban the sale of nuts that aren't already pre-packed in shops

Some people really don't understand allergies, they don't realise that the most severe reaction can be anaphylaxis and death or that allergies can be airborne... Shops like Holland & Barrett are selling loose nuts from a 'pic N mix' style stand in their shops; for someone with an airborne nut allergy this is a serious hazard. We have reached the point whereby food menus have to be clearly labelled and ingredients lists detailing allergens readily available yet people still don't take allergies seriously and think people "being fussy" or will "come out in a rash". I believe that any product that can cause an allergic reaction to someone just by them being in the vicinity of it should have to be properly packaged  by law and not just left out in the air waiting for someone with an allergy to come along and go into anaphylaxis or worse.
