Cast pie out though it's germ-free (7)


I believe the answer is:


'it's germ-free' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'cast pie out' is the wordplay.
'out' is an anagram indicator (out can mean wrong or inaccurate).
'castpie' anagrammed gives 'ASEPTIC'.

'though' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for aseptic that I've seen before include "Free from bacteria, surgically clean" , "ideal conditions for hospital?" , "Free from bacteria, surically clean" , "Paciest (anag.)" , "Free of bacterial or viral contamination" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
