Wednesday, February 13, 2019 – Protect Your Birds
Yesterday I purchased a new skillet. When I turned it over to see how to season it, I saw this in the instructions. I did not believe it at first either.
If you are having difficulty reading the before you use instructions, the sentence reads:
CAUTION: Please keep pet birds out of the kitchen. Birds’ respiratory systems are sensitive to many fumes, including the fumes of extremely overheated nonstick pans.
It immediately made me question “How was this determined?” Was there a lab experiment to determine which animals might be injured and the birds won? I have no answers. I noticed it said “Pet Birds.” So I assume that means you own multiples and that wild birds in your kitchen are okay.
I also wondered, “What about my respiratory system? What about Peach’s respiratory system?”
I apologize for the brevity of today. I am cooking chicken in my new skillet and must go tend to it.
