    .... "The mushrooms’ porous surface makes them too hard to adequately clean. Mushrooms growing in areas that were affected by the widespread flooding should be avoided entirely, even after a suggested 120-day waiting period" ....

    Seems like a lot of hype over nothing to really be concerned about or am I just crazy? This seems like it would be possible in many areas every year that are hunted flooded or not. Shit is everywhere lol.
