Wheat Scab

 

(in Russian, p’ianyi khleb, “drunken bread”), bread made from contaminated wheat, rye, barley, or oat flour. Contamination occurs in grain infected by a species of pathogenic fungi of the genus Fusarium, particularly by Fusarium graminearum. Wheat scab causes alimentary toxic aleukia when ingested by humans. It is also poisonous to animals.
