    When that isn’t available, it’s either what’s in the back yard garden, or the Asian grocery store.  A few weeks back we had some dish with pengi mushrooms, a few days later I came across this news item while watching the news:

    Four dead, 32 sickened in listeria outbreak tied to mushrooms from Korea
    Listeria is particularly risky for the elderly and pregnant women. Two women have reported miscarriages caused by the contaminated enoki mushrooms.

    Four people have died and 32 people have been sickened in a listeria outbreak across 17 states that has been tied to enoki mushrooms, which were recalled Monday, according to health officials.

    The contaminated mushrooms, sold by Sun Hong Foods, Inc. based in California, are imported from Korea and have been distributed to California, Texas, Oregon, Washington, Illinois and Florida, according to a recall statement from the company.

    But the Food and Drug Administration said its recent investigation found that since November 2016, people have been sickened by the mushrooms in 17 states. At least 30 of the 32 people who have reported falling ill were hospitalized.

    These are Enoki brand “peng i” mushrooms from South Korea. The long stringy kind usually with a white color. ( luckily no one around our area is sick)

      @soryang Wow, you guys were lucky. I read about those Inoki mushrooms being contaminated but have no idea how it happened. Growing mushrooms required cleanliness…soooo how did it happen? Very sad that people died, glad you were safe. Thanks for your post!

        @haikugal   I have no idea how listeria happens.  I could ask a food scientist i know since listeria is important in his professional career.   When you first mentioned a choir I first thought you meant a heavenly chorus.   This is what i think of when my wife tells me she’s sure the mushrooms she’s picking off some rock are safe to eat.  “You know how much this mushroom costs?”

          First of all that was a meme I found on facebook…yeah, I have a facebook account… anyway…my son thinks I’m going to kill myself with my foraging but I’m actually very careful and study before I eat any mushrooms I find wild. However I need to understand listeria so more study in my future.
