Bought mushrooms 100% safe: iLIVE
The headline "KZN declares war on mushrooms" (September 28) is potentially damaging to the mushroom industry.
It is important to note that the mushrooms that caused the unfortunate deaths were wild mushrooms picked in the veld. They bear no resemblance to cultivated commercially grown mushrooms, which are 100% safe to eat and sold in supermarkets. They are never poisonous. In fact, they are seen as a superfood due to their many health benefits (go to www.mushroominfo.co.za).
