I believe this is one of those issues which comes up every few years (like cyanide in apple seeds) on facebook shared pictures, chain emails, local news special reports, etc.

Although it's not a big danger, it's worth knowing so thanks for posting. For most (healthy) people, it sounds like it just means you need to put kidney beans in the same category as things like pork, wild game, and shellfish: foods that deserve thorough cooking.

Have a mix of foods & prepare those foods properly. What's the problem? Plus, 99% of the time I do a mix of beans.

Who would eat uncooked or partially cooked dried beans of any kind?

I read that old crockpots didn't actually boil so I watched all three of mine and they do boil the beans on both High and Low settings. If the beans boil, I believe there is no problem with the toxic substance.

I read this this summer about all beans. Now I'm careful to watch my dog in the garden, because she likes to eat while we pick veggies lol. She really likes the southern peas.
