Good comes from most things though. At least we were given the opportunity to support Medtrain.

I'm sorry to hear this happened - I know that this is a scenario we all fear and I can only imagine how tough this must be. Since you said you shopped at Walmart - is there any chance that some of the recalled celery was involved? You can look at the recall list here: Taylor Farms Pacific, Inc. Recalls Celery Products Because Of Possible Health Risk

Please let us know how you and your family are doing.

This discussion has been closed by the site team and I wanted to let you know the reason behind this.

Recently we were contacted by news outlets asking questions about the first post of this thread after it was identified as being suspicious.

Shortly after this first post was made back in 2015 an unusual number of links were posted on twitter and other social media from Russian linked accounts all linking to this post. This post was used to perpetuate alarm about wide spread turkey poisoning that turned out to be false.

Today the Wall Street Journal ran an article about this and you can read it here: https://www.wsj.com/graphics/russian...-u-s-election/

It's disheartening to consider that Discuss Cooking would have been used in this way but we thought in the interest of transparency you would want to know.

The friendly community we work so hard to maintain was used to leverage discord and agendas that are antithetical to those ideals that most folks hold. We are quick to trust what we read and the motivations of others and so while it is distasteful, we must recognize that we were unwittingly scooped up in a misinformation scheme designed to sow discord and distrust.

We're grateful that diligent reporters and investigators have shone a bright light on this problem and hope to learn from this - we should all pay a little closer attention.
