Eat a Smurf's dwelling?

I'm usually not inclined to eat things I find in the front yard but this thing had me curious. Searching the internet for edible Smurf houses lead me to tentatively identify this as a Birch Bolete.

Sure enough ~ it is growing under a birch tree. But I think l'll pass on eating it and just watch it grow.

I have no idea where the mushrooms I buy in the store come from ~ for all I know they could come from Sumguy's front yard though I seriously doubt it. And I figure that at the very least most stores encourage repeat business by not poisoning their customers.

Though with all the food product recalls lately I'm starting to question that assumption.
