Arizona Highways magazine made a major mistake in their October issue involving an article about the fly agaric mushroom and was unclear about whether or not the fungi could be eaten.
But the mushroom should not be consumed!
If eaten raw, the mushroom, which is native to Arizona, can cause psychological and physical effects.
Statement from Win Holden,
publisher of Arizona Highways magazine:
"This issue will not be sold on newsstands, and we are alerting our
subscribers to the mistake. We regret the error."
A digital copy of the October issue is available their web site.
