Philip Müller claimed in a memoir published in 1979 that in 1942 people were gassed fully clothed and with their luggage?!been-there wrote:Preparation and planning: "Remove food."

And then he claimed that he ate some freshly HCN-fumigated poppyseed cake from a suitcase whilst undressing a recently gassed corpse without negative affects!?
As far as I understood from the Zyklon B instructions, that was inadvisable. The reason I presume that was advised against is because certain foods would cause Ill-health if eaten after the extremely recent exposure to HCN gas. In other words eating something like a cake or bread directly after it had just been exposed to HCN gas was DANGEROUS!
The issue for me is NOT about fatality from eating a freshly fumigated poppyseed cake, but risk of ill-health.
From the spring of 1942:
Why would his hands be “filthy with "blood”?“Out of the corner of my eye I noticed a half-opened suit-case containing food. Pretending to be busy undressing a corpse with one hand, I ransacked the suit-case with the other. Keeping one eye on the door in case Stark returned suddenly I hastily grabbed a few triangles of cheese and a poppyseed cake. With my filthy, blood-stained fingers I broke off pieces of cake and devoured them ravenously…”  Also, “Before we left, an SS man distributed bread rations. Our hands were filthy with blood and excrement, but we did not care: hunger and starvation had taught us to appreciate a hunk of bread.”
