In October’s issue as part of the magazine’s nature factoid section the fly agaric mushroom is featured and labelled as edible.

Arizona Highways latest issue has been mailed to it’s 123,000 subscribers. “We regret the error,” said the magazine’s publisher. Considered to be poisonous, the mushroom also contains psychoactive chemicals.

Win Holden (publisher of Arizona Highways) said that the “issue will not be sold on news stands, and we are alerting our subscribers to the mistake.”

According to UK drug advisory website Frank, tucking into a fly agaric isn’t the best idea: “People don’t tend to eat fly agaric mushrooms raw as they can make you feel really sick and also because there is a greater risk of poisoning and death from this family of mushrooms.”
