DP put Shake n Vac in the mince instead of salt. We are it and only realised later.

AIBU to seek medical assistance?

What does the box say?

I'd ring 111 unless you are feeling unwell at the moment. They will be able to advise.

I wouldn’t bother personally have a read of this.

Didn’t you notice the taste?!

SadiePurple Mon 10-Aug-20 19:55:40

Has it put the freshness back?

And you wouldn’t have ingested much unless he puts a ton of salt in food?!

Nah, he would have hardly put any in compared to the amount of food as a whole and you didn’t taste it as you were eating it.

Drink lots of water.

That’s quite an error op. No advice but hope not hung comes of it (and maybe re-organise your cupboards)

We didn't notice the taste because we had quite a bit of red wine.

I'm probably overreacting.

How the heck do you mix shake and vac up with salt hmm

AnIckabog Mon 10-Aug-20 19:57:28

Did it taste lemony fresh?

As long as you both feel ok then 111 is probably a better plan than going straight to hospital, they will be able to advise. Hope you're both ok.

Sadiepurple, you beat me to it grin

Crazycrazylady Mon 10-Aug-20 19:57:45

I wouldn't bother.. drink loads of milk and lots of water and you'll be fine unless you ate it in spoonfuls!

Rose789 Mon 10-Aug-20 19:59:37

How? It smells so strong how did you not realize? Presumably it tastes just as strong as it smells so I imagine you ate one mouthful and spat it out?

Isinknot Mon 10-Aug-20 20:04:00

@Harleyisme DP is an idiot.

Yes, but even people who are idiots do not put shake and vac in their food.

I don’t get itx

Hippofrog Mon 10-Aug-20 20:07:17

When your mince smells fresh so do you
Next time you cook your mince you know just what to do.....

QueenBarb Mon 10-Aug-20 20:08:59

I once used Pledge as hairspray as I didn’t have my contacts in and it was close to my Elnett, but Shake N Vac in mince is a hell of a mix up! Couldn’t he smell it, isn’t it more powdery than salt?

You need to rinse your mince.
