Product Warning ~ Item from TJ's but found elsewhere:

Santini's Chef's Choice Mixed Wild Mushrooms (dried).

I was setting up to make Wild Mushroom/Asparagus Risotto last evening and had just purchased this packet from my local Trader Joe's (although I am sure this product is available at other stores). The expiration date on the product is 3-5-2004.

I opened the sealed plastic bag and dumped the dried mushroooms in a bowl to reconstitute with boiling water when I noticed no less than 6 dead moths lying on the bottom on the bowl.

Now in the past, I had a HUGE problem with moths and I am confident that if I had not just purchased the item for immediate use, but had kept this product in my pantry for later use, I would have incurred yet another infestation as these little bugs are extremely prolific.

I'm sure when I return the item to TJ's I will get a full refund, but I wanted to warn all of you to look carefully at this product before you use it.
