Connecticut Woman Accidentally Poisons Family

A Connecticut woman accidentally poisoned her family by cooking up wild mushrooms found in her yard. The mushrooms were identified as Amanita bisporigera, one of the species known as Destroying Angel. From what I understand, they were treated in time to prevent death. The family also thought they were pretty tasty as well. Fortunately, they sought treatment right away when symptoms first appeared, and, unlike some mushrooms, the symptoms appeared within the next day, instead of several days like some mushrooms.

Great reminder... this is a hobby that you cannot be willie-nillie about. I know I pass by things that are edible... but I have so much to learn.
