Bit odd.

There was an upsurge in mushroom poisoning in 2011 in NE US.

There were 63 reported mushroom poisonings in September in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire, more than double the 28 reported during the same month last year, according to the Northern New England Poison Center.

The increase was even more dramatic in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, where there were 45 calls about poisonings in September 2011 against just 5 reports in September 2010, according to Colleen Connolly, spokeswoman for Children’s Hospital Boston, which runs the two-state poison center.

And warnings for the UK in 2016 by The Sun but no mass poisoning seemed to follow.

I very much doubt if the US is engaging in indiscriminate mass murder in Iran.
