The whole Bunker household is thrown into an uproar -- and the cause of it all is a dish of stew. Archie eats some mushrooms for lunch. Later, he learns those mushrooms may be part of a product recall because they were in a batch laced with bacteria. Believing that he has eaten poison mushrooms, Archie is convinced he is at death's door. Despite Mike's urging, Archie decides he doesn't want to bother with taking the rest of the cans of mushrooms back to the store ... or worry himself with the fact he may have food poisoning.
