I have never heard of these. Are they poison like some other white berries?

@B. Thomas: An article on the Seattle Times website says: "The round, white berries on the common snowberry (Symphoricarpos alba) have saponins in them, which are toxic but poorly absorbed by the body and tend to pass through and cause little harm. Saponins are found in some kinds of beans and other plants we eat regularly." I'm not sure this is a common snowberry but, I wouldn't eat the berries.
