Our general rule is if you feel uneasy about eating an item, why bother?

Cannot enjoy eating anything if in the back of my mind is the idea that I, or worse someone else, might spend the night next to the porcelain convenience or with IV's running.

We just toss old stuff in the woods next to the house in the pile with the tree cuttings, leaves, and other detritus and let Mother Nature take care of it.

Before criticizing a person, walk a mile in his shoes - then you are a mile away and you have his shoes!

Ah, yes. I understand now. The pickles were definitely ready for the compost heap
