I’ve decided to put this up as a helper to my fellow GMW guys in Tamarack Hall, as well as a warning to any students who visited Tamarack Hall’s floor 3 kitchen in the past two weeks.
A lot of food was left in Tamarack 3 kitchen, declared as free for taking by a Facebook post. I cannot verify this post as I don’t have Facebook but anyone willing to send me the link, that’d be much appreciated. There were at least ten paper bags and one box full of food in floor 3’s kitchen up until today, where it was dealt with by me.
If you have taken anything from that food pile in the past two weeks before it was disposed of today, DO NOT CONSUME IT!! All of it was stale, ranging in expiration dates from 2009-2014. The oldest item there were rice sticks from 2003. I personally sorted through everything there this morning and disposed of it all.
Not only were they stale, most of the packages were already opened. There were grease stains on most of the plastic pasta packages. Frankly, it looks very much like someone cleaned house and dumped everything on Tamarack floor 3’s kitchen. I don’t know the situation regarding this food and if the Facebook poster mentioned anything about it, but DO NOT EAT IT if you have taken anything. You WILL get sick.
This is a PSA, public service announcement, from a student GMW in Tamarack Hall. To anyone who took food from that stash, check out the expiration date before you eat/use it. You won’t regret it.
