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.
