    Blue Flakes

    OK,,,So this is not a "Treasure" post, but I don`t know what else to do. I have Googled it every way I can think of,,posted it on FB,,all to no avail. This is a jar of liquor,,,,the white stuff. I got it out of the pantry on Fri. and it has blue flakey floaties in it. What are they? Why are they in there? Is it safe? It`s been in the pantry for 2 months maybe. ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanx,,,Lori

    Arsenic or copper sulphate crystals.

    That happens when you buy liquor without a label.
    When it comes to detecting, you will always find me "out standing in the field".

    I can't help but wonder if the flakes are coming off of the inside of the lid. Have you opened the jar at all?

    Sorry, it is nothing I would want to ingest.

    if you drink it and you die, then you know it's bad for you. if it doesn't kill you, then I guess it was ok.

    Re: Blue Flakes

    I would ask the person who made it,,,,but it was a third party buy and the third party is now working in another state. Certainly has made me look at this product in a different light.

    Same problem here. I found some, had left stored for a couple months and it has blue flakes attached to bottom of mason jar. From what I have read it IS NOT SAFE to drink. So I guess I will dump it out and not go back to the same source.

    There were warnings way back when alcohol was illegal about the trustworthiness
    of people that break the law. Like drug dealers.
    It might be a copper compound from the still. Somethings not right.

    I think you nailed it...Turquoise was created by moonshiners!
