I got this email today and thought I would share it.

This is confirmed on Snopes www.snopes.com...

A student at HBHS (high school) had pancakes this week and it almost became fatal. His Mom (registered nurse) made him pancakes, dropped him off at school and headed to play tennis. She never takes her cell phone on the court but did this time and her son called to say he was having trouble breathing. She told him to go to the nurse immediately and proceeded to call school and alert the nurse. The nurse called the paramedics and they were there in 3 minutes and worked on the boy all the way to the hospital. He came so close to dying. Evidently this is more common then I ever knew. Check the expiration dates on packages like pancakes and cake mixes that have yeast which over time develop spores. Apparently, the mold that forms in old mixes can be toxic! Throw away ALL OUTDATED pancake mix, brownie mixes, Bisquick, cake & cookie mixes, etc., you have in your home.

P.S. Tell this to your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and anyone else who keeps these types of mixes in the cupboard.

Care to elaborate as to why it turns deadly
Good info to explain

I go through my pantry monthly and my fridge weekly. Things that are close to expiring get pulled up front. Things that have expired go in the trash. I never use anything without checking the date. Also smell whatever you open before you use it. My sister opened a container of chicken broth and noticed it had a strange smell. She poured it into a bowl and a large chunk of skin fell out.

But.... these mixes are baking powder based and don't have yeast.

sodakota, I believe you are correct. Pancake miz does not have yeast in it. It uses baking powder to make it rise. Now, I have heard of a deadly mold called Ergot (maybe, can't remember, but I think it's close) that can grow on wheat and other grains and make you very, very sick. So for now, I'm calling this a chain e-mail hoax.
