Dear Barbara: You write frequently about food safety. That brings up a question concerning “sun tea.” It sits out in the sun for hours and no one seems to mind; plus I have not heard of anyone that got sick from drinking sun tea. Can you give me any info on that? — Kylie from Lodi

Dear Kylie: People have been drinking sun tea for years and haven’t gotten sick — or maybe it isn’t newsworthy because we don’t have an outbreak of it. I think there are as many people who say it is OK as there are who say it isn’t.

    I hope this author is better at cooking than she is at writing. The title of the article not only infers there is something unhealthy about sun tea but it is so serious that it might almost kill you. The article continues with "People have been drinking sun tea for years and haven’t gotten sick ". Well what is it? Almost kill you or haven't gotten sick?

    Barbara, it sounds like you've been out in the sun too long, not the tea.
