A woman's in-laws sneak mushrooms into every dish they cook despite her severe allergy.

One unnamed daughter-in-law has penned a letter to an advice column pleading for some advice about her boyfriend's parents, who use the food as an ingredient in every single dish they serve, even going as far as to sprinkle mushroom powder into mashed potatoes.

Writing to The Cut's Ask Polly column, she said:" I have a very severe allergy to mushrooms. I carry an EpiPen, and I have been hospitalized multiple times because of exposure to this food.

"Since then, most meals we have shared at my in-laws' house have had very limited options for me. Somehow, they manage to find a way to add mushrooms to almost everything.

"One time, they made a point to make a special plate of mushrooms and pass it around. My mother-in-law said, very rudely, 'I would've liked to add mushrooms directly to the salad, but SOMEBODY has problems with it!'

"They even added mushroom powder to the mashed potatoes at one holiday dinner. (sic)
