Natural-Food Blogger's Book Recalled For Potentially Toxic Recipes

A popular blogger and Instagrammer's cookbook has been recalled by its publisher because several of its recipes include toxic ingredients.

Johnna Holmgren is an herbalist/stay-at-home-mom/blogger who gave birth to her child in the woods by her house and became famous on Instagram for her raw recipes and foraging for her own ingredients. She and her publisher, Rodale Books, published her cookbook called Tales From A Forager's Kitchen.

The problem: Her recipes include raw morel mushrooms and raw elderberries, which can cause severe illness. Several real other foragers took to the internet to warn people not to use these recipes.

The publisher has temporarily withdrawn the book, though it is still available on Amazon.

How do you feel about the "natural" food movement?
