WA Branch Seminar Series: Wild Mushroom Soup – What Not to Serve for Dinner

30/08/2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm AWST

Recent news stories have reminded us that using wild mushrooms for culinary or psychoactive use is extremely dangerous, with wrong identification potentially leading to organ failure and death.

Join us on Wednesday 30th August to hear from Paul Sakrajda, a Chemist and Research Officer in the West Australian Police Toxicology team. He will share the story of a wild mushroom soup that caused eight people to become ill and two sent to hospital. He will give a chemist’s perspective of how the gastric contents, wine and food items implicated in the event were systematically analysed to lead to the source of the ‘poison’.

This event will be held face-to-face at the Exhibition Space of Curtin University Building 500. The presentation will start at 6 pm, with refreshments & mingling from 5:30 pm. Please register using the link below by Monday 28th August for catering purposes.
