    Oh my !! That is a very helpful article.......
  3. Great to know.  I am a cancer patient so I have to be extremely careful after chemo treatments due to the low immune system.  Any germs or infections can have serious consequences. 
  4. I knew that crockpots don't really get to temperatures safe for meat, but I had no idea about beans!!! Great info to know and thanks for sharing it.

    I do my pintos and navys  in a crockpot from bag to done in a bout 5 hrs with the pot set on the 4hr HIGH side. I don't know how hot a bean needs to get but if my crock is boiling along the sides, then I doubt it could get much hotter. The article doesn't mention pinto or navy beans, but Kidney beans are common in chili and I have used those quite a bit with just a simple rinse and soak, then tossed into the chili on the backside to simmer, haven't had a problem. This is the first I have ever heard of any beans having a toxicity problem.. But I'm often wrong...

    The article did mention lima beans, which should be discarded upon receipt anyways..[​IMG]

    Great Post and I learned something new. Maybe it is just me and the fact that I only Braise or cook Low and Slow when I have the time to monitor the cook, but I have actually Never cooked anything in a Crock Pot and only use it for reheating and holding for Parties...JJ
