cashew seeds

Cashew nuts are toxic

cashew seeds

This seed is encased in a poisonous, kidney-shaped shell. Anacardic Acid, the poison, is identical to the toxin found in poison ivy. This oily substance irritates the skin, generating an allergic reaction. Because of the poisonous chemical on the shell, cashew nuts are not sold in their shells like peanuts.
