You might need a stronger microscope. In a vinegar environment you won't get Botulism poisoning since it doesn't like vinegar, but there are plenty of other bacterias, yeasts, molds and fungi that would love to give you anywhere from mild to serious discomfort, assuming your immune system is not compromised.

Its just a safety warning. Up to you whether you take it serious or not.

I will keep this in mind, and will boil instead next time. Thanks for the safety tip.

We've had a FoodSaver for a number of years and really like it. I use it a lot more now that I'm alone. It takes me almost 6 weeks to eat a 13-ounce bag of potato chips so the FoodSaver keeps them from going stale.

I also portion individual pieces of chicken/steaks/chops for the freezer. I try not to let anything go to waste or be stored in the freezer too long.

I've seen them at Wal-Mart, luvs. Amazon also has them and, of course, you can go to the FoodSaver home page for bags and accessories.

The ones at Wal-Mart fit ours, which is easily 5-years-old. The ones at the FoodSaver site will have what you need for whatever machine you have. I'd check Wal-Mart first.

I believe FS has always used standard sizes - gallon/quart for pre made bags, 8"/11" for rolls. What size does your FS manual say to use?
