A British football club has warned their fans against throwing celery during matches, saying it was a criminal offence and that anyone caught lobbing the popular salad vegetable could be banned.
The unlikely warning follows referee reports mentioning celery-throwing at two recent Chelsea football club matches.
The reports are being investigated by the Football Association (FA), the club says on its website.
The FA's investigation could result in sanctions being taken against the club, who says "the throwing of anything at a football match, including celery, is a criminal offence for which you can be arrested and end up with a criminal record".
"In future, if anyone is found attempting to bring celery into Stamford Bridge they could be refused entry and anyone caught throwing celery will face a ban," it said.
"The club also urged fans who spot anyone throwing celery in the stadium to call a telephone number, adding that "all calls will be treated in confidence".
