Sunday January 06, 2013 10:28:16 PM, IANS

London: The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) appears to have gone bananas while banning the fruit at their new one billion pound headquarters. Posters have been put up warning colleagues not to eat them at workplace.

The ban was requested by a journalist who said she could suffer a fatal reaction if she came into contact with a banana, The Sun reported Sunday.

Workers at the Beeb's new HQ in London decided to hang up posters of a banana with a giant cross across it. It indicates staff are forbidden from peeling or consuming the fruit anywhere near others.

"The posters were put up for a colleague who has a strong medical sensitivity," said a BBC spokesperson.
