Having allergies to nuts is common amongst people, and for processed foods that they may not have tried before, some of them say "May contain nuts" or "contains traces of nuts".

My question is: Is there such a way to create a piece of digital technology (that could be used in a machine) that runs an algorithm to scan a candy bar, protein bar, etc, for traces of various nuts? Or is that just something a computer can't automate?

(I know this is more of a calculator programming site, but I thought there might be some experts in overall technological innovation. I just want to know if it is possible, not necessarily advise others to work on such a project.)
Someone bumped my obscure thread to advertise? Don't people usually advertise on new posts?
