daf2Supermarkets in the UK have been told to move daffodils, a popular yellow flower, away from fruit and vegetables.

Public Health England, a part of the government, is worried that people might get confused and think that the flowers are onions or a type of Chinese vegetable.

Daffodils are very poisonous and will make you vomit if you eat them. Therefore Public Health England has asked supermarkets to move the daffodil flowers and bulbs away from the fruit and vegetable section.
