Whoops! Arizona Highways magazine declares A. muscaria edible; recalls press run

The venerable and justly famous magazine Arizona Highways provides its 350,000 subscribers some of the most beautiful nature photography, and most informative stories about traveling and adventuring in Arizona, that have ever been published.

However, they had to recall the entire press run of their October 2013 issue after they showed a photograph of a bright red Amanita muscaria with a caption declaring it safe to eat.

A statement about the mistake was recently posted on their blog.


NOTE: Follow-up discussion from December 20 is here:
