Seems another group of hashers is in trouble again for flour. Just when you thought it was safe to use flour...Here we go again.....(hmmm spell check wants to replace hashers with either washers or warriors....)

Suspicious Powder Explained

June 4, 2004 — Philadelphia police know who was behind last night's hazardous materials scare outside the US Mint in Center City. Just after 9:30, someone was spotted sprinkling powder outside the Mint in the 100 block of North 5th Street. The powder turned out to be cornstarch.

Investigators say a running group, the Hash House Harriers, was behind the incident.

The front runners use piles of corn starch to mark their trail so slower runners know where to go.
