Syringe contamination
    #3951682 - 03/22/05 12:53 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I recieved my spores the other day, but there was a slight problem. During shipping some of the spores and fluid was compressed out of the syringe. Luckily due to the shape of the package it was easy to recover. Are the spores going to be contaminated? Are they still good?
Help on this matter will be appreciated.

i would say that now that you've sucked however little (or much) water that leaked back into the syringes they'd be contaminated. shoulda just let the water stay outside, its okay if a little bit squirts out during shipping.

Yeah I sucked it back in. If it had just been a little fluid that leaked out i would have left it. But it was nearly 4 shots of spores, so i figured id suck it back in.

You can tell the vendor your problem and i would think if it was his faulty packaging they should send you a new one

You figgured wrong.

Ask the Spore Vendor to replace the syringe.

I wish more Spore Vendors would use electrical tape to keep the plunger locked in place during shipping!!!!

Dude, I would contact whoever you bought it from and demand a refund or at the very minimum a new syringe.

Yeah wait and see what happens...you might get lucky.

if not you will get to see contams first hand.

if you do get contams...dump the jar out...outside into a bag.
and take a bucket of bleachy water with you...and put the jars in that.
scrub them out and wash them up really good.

then start over.

good luck!~

I wrote them a complaint. But damn, somthing so easily contaminated should def. have a much better package. I'll see what sporebank says if i get a reply anytime within the next month, I really dont think they'll replace it beacuse its not really their fault, it just good old UPS. Good thing it says fragile, id hate to see what they would do to it if they didnt have fragile written in big bold black letters

I had a problem with that company also, but to their credit they do give a free pack of 10 San Pedro cactus seeds(me like) with each order. I tried www.spores101.com this time though, lets see how good these guys are.

I wrote 'em a letter too, but they don't like to get back to you. Threaten 'em with something like, " You don't give me my spores, I'll never do business with you again. Period bitch!!" That'll wake 'em up.

And don't forget to mention all the bad press they're getting in the Shroomery right now. Good Luck. Next time, try The Hawkseye.

Dear SporeBank
You guys are a bunch of fuckin idiots. My spores were contaminated becuase of your shitty ass set up. When i tried to grow mushrooms, i got a bunch a black mold in the jars. I thought my lungs were bad from smoking too much pot, but then you guys went and did it. I have a life threatening respiratory caused by the Black mold. Its all your fault. Now give me some free spores or i sue your ass. (not the acual note lol)

I don't think it costs that much to make a syringe, maybe a couple of bucks the most, the very most plus labor, and their selling them for nineteen dollars a piece(God where did those PF days go 10 dollars then with shipping). If I ran that kind of operation, any complaints would be handled expedient and professionally.

Did you actually end up getting black mold from the spores?
