I don't know if anyone's mentioned this, but have you heard of the banning of wild mushrooms for sale at Farmer's Markets throughout LA County?

Dave the Shroom purveyor in Santa Monica has been ordered by the County Health Dept to closeup shop since his foraged products aren't from an "approved" farm source.

How bizarre is this? He's been providing restaurants and foodies with morels, matsutake, porcini for years without anyone getting sick.
