I've never used Beano, but the same company makes Lactaid, and when that
product came out, it carried a similar warning.  When I questioned the
company about it, they told me (I'm not remembering eloquently - it was some
time ago) the product was derived from a substance either similar to or same
as what penicillin's derived from, so some people might have a sensitivity
to the product.  Sounds like they did the same thing when formulating Beano,
but perhaps they've modified it since then since there's no longer a warning.
