for those that cook......
 
 
 A student at HBHS had pancakes this week and it almost became fatal. His Mom (Registered Nurse) made him pancakes, dropped him off at school and headed to play tennis. She never takes her cell phone on the court but did this time.... Her son called to say he was having trouble breathing. She told him to go to the nurse immediately and proceeded to call school and alert the nurse. The nurse called the paramedics and they were there in 3 minutes and worked on the boy all the way to the hospital. He came so close to dying. Evidently, this is more common then I ever knew.

***Check the expiration dates on packages like pancakes and cake mixes that have yeast, which over time develop spores. Apparently, the mold that forms in old mixes can be toxic!  Throw away ALL OUTDATED pancake mix, Bisquick, brownie mixes, etc... you have in your home.

You can check this  website.......

P.  S. You might want to tell this to your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and anyone else who keeps these type
s of mixes in the pantry.

 Thanks for sharing... I make pancakes, brownies, etc. from scratch, but it's still good to know!

Yeah, I've read about this.  It has killed at least 1 person, documented.  Those can be very deadly toxins.  I go through the pantry and fridge about once a month to check for expireds.  Thanks for posting!

I think jiffy mix is one of them too... I don't know if you guys use that for pancakes and biscuits, but I do.

It's kind of a coincidence that you posted this.This morning I was going to make pancakes and I looked on the box and it said best before May 09.I was wondering if it was still okay to eat it,but I decided not to.Good thing I didn't.Thanks for posting this.
