How to avoid getting sick from a baked peston

Pest control sprays and baked pestons can make you sick, according to a new study from the National Center for Homeopathy and Nutrition. 

In fact, the study found that, among all the foods that were tested, baked pestolone, a product of the cabbage family, was the most commonly implicated ingredient.

Baked pestolones contain a bacterium called Lactobacillus casei, which has been implicated in outbreaks of Crohn’s disease, according a statement from the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

In this case, the product was tested on animals that had Crohn-type illness and showed elevated serum levels of Lactabacillus, an indicator of the bacterium. 

This elevated serum level was the same as the results of a study that also showed elevated levels of the bacteria in dogs that had had Crohl’s disease.

The findings are important because they suggest that baked pestolinone may increase the risk of a Crohn disease flare-up. 

According to the Center, “the potential for acute disease in dogs, including Crohn, can occur when a pet receives a cooked product contaminated with LactoBacillus. 

[The] increased risk of Crohns in dogs is a very real concern.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people limit their consumption of cooked foods, especially baked products, if they are sick.
