expired boxed food mixes
Last week I read on some site, please don't ask me which one, since I read a lot of health and related items. Some lady had posted that she made pancakes, with a mix she always uses. In about half hr. her son was wheezing, his lips turned blue. She knew it was shock, called the hosp. They said to bring the box mix along with syrup and juice in. It turned out they got the boy well, and she was given a paper on old mixes. There is a type of mold that grows on grains and flours, and her son was given a test, and that is what it was. So that is one good reason to toss out expired food with flours in them. I suppose one could do a search online for this and find more on it.
