Cake Mix Warning!
(not a joke)

Warning  re: cake mixes - who knew?
I  always thought that "old" mixes that were past their expiration date would just not rise/bake correctly. This is  scary!
Somebody  wrote: 'Before my surgery I bought quite a few Duncan Hines cakes mixes that were on sale. A couple of months ago I decided  to use one, I checked the expiration date and found it past, all the boxes were past the expiration date. I phoned Duncan Hinds to ask if the one that was only two months passed if it was OK.  She told me in no uncertain words to throw them all out, she  even said to open the boxes and throw the mix in the garbage, just in case someone picked it up and used it.

Cake Mixes & Toxins- **PLEASE  READ**  Pass this on to ALL in your address book. You never know whose life you may save by doing so. For those of you at work, PLEASE  remember to check your cupboards when you get home tonight!!!

This  is confirmed on Snopes:

A  student at HBHS (high school) 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 and 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 Throw away ALL OUTDATED pancake mix, brownie mixes, Bisquick, cake & cookie mixes, etc., you have in your home.

            P.S.  Tell this to your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and anyone else who keeps these types of mixes in the  cupboard.
            P.P.S.  This warning especially applies to any person(s) with mold allergies.

  3. Does the expiration on a Bottle of Medicine mean anything?

    Does the expiration on a Bottle of Medicine mean anything?
    If a bottle of Tylenol, for example, says something like "Do not use after June 1998," and it is August 2002, should you take the Tylenol? Should you discard it? Can you get hurt if you take it? Will it simply have lost its potency and do you no good?   In other words, are drug manufacturers being honest with us when they put an expiration date on their medications, or is the practice of dating just another drug industry scam, to get us to buy new medications when the old ones that purportedly
