Japaneese Knotweed In Salad ? Not Sure About That

Caught a news program on WNEP 16.  Some cafe up the line along the Susquhenna River was using all local, natural ingredients in there food.

They had a salad where they used young shoots of Japaneese Knotweed that came from the banks of the Susquehanna river.  Eeeeew.  Maybe if  I was stuck on Survivor Island.

Japaneese Knotweed is an invasive plant, like Bamboo.  It looks like Bamboo.  We used to burn the stalks of it down the river in the winter to get a fire going quick. 

Anyway, at least in the Wyoming Valley the Susquehanna river is not clean ... has a lot of sewers emptying into it.   On rescue diver gave an interview and he said he decontaminated his dive suit and equipment with a solution of bleach and water.  Then he took antibiotics for 5 days after a dive.

So I would not want ot eat a plant that was in the river.
