Mushroom pickers poisoned after eating Death Caps

Seven Washington County residents are expected to survive after eating poisonous mushrooms.
The group was hospitalized after picking the mushrooms near their home.

Death Cap Mushrooms grow in abundance in the Northwest and can be confused with popular non-poisonous varieties.

Death Caps are pale green, yellow or white, they're slippery or sticky when touched and they're shiny when they're dry.

People usually experience symptoms six to 24 hours after eating them. They can cause severe stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea and fever.

The symptoms can also subside for one or two days giving a false impression of recovery.

However, the toxin can cause severe liver or kidney damage and can lead to a coma or death a few days after they are eaten.
