its just a warning to people with tree nut allergies http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tree_nut_allergy and who may not realise that cashews are tree nuts.

( ever seen a pack of peanuts with the warning, 'contains peanuts' . not that peanuts are tree nuts tho )

Has a list of tree nuts. I don't usually think of coconuts as tree nuts.

Cashews are tree nuts.

You cashew butter contains cashews, cashews are tree nuts, therefore your cashew butter contains tree nuts. They put this on the label for people with allergies to tree nuts that don't know that a cashew is a tree nut.
