Caregiver Who Made Deadly Mushroom Soup Banned from Facility


The Mallorca mushroom is deadly but can be mistaken for edible look-a-like the Chanterelle.


The caregiver who unknowingly included poisonous mushrooms in a soup that killed four seniors and sickened several others has had her license revoked.

The Department of Social Services investigated the Gold Age Villa, on Horseshoe Bar Road in Loomis, and slapped caregiver Lilia Tirdea with a lifetime exclusion.

The ban keeps Tirdea from being employed at any other care facility licensed by the state.

    Im such a chicken. I dont eat anything unless i planted or raised it.

    I feel sorry for the caregiver she has got to be feeling horrible. I think taking her license is just a kick while she is down.

    I pray for all in this horrible situation. I hope the families understand she made a horrible misjudgement.

    This is just one sad sad story.
