Celebrity Chef Recommends Poisonous Ingredient

-Julie Ryan Evans

I’ve tried some bad recipes before, but nothing this bad.

In a magazine interview, Celebrity Chef Worrall Thompson mistakenly recommended that readers add a potentially fatal herb to the salads. Ironically, the name of the magazine in which the article appeared is Healthy and Organic Living.

Instead of fat hen, which is reportedly a safe and delicious addition to salads, Thomspon recommended henbane, which can cause hallucinations, convulsions, vomiting and death. Yikes!

The magazine printed a correction the following month, and as far as they know, there have been no fatalities because of the mistake. But a warning a month later could have been a little too little too late, no?
