Not getting correct output from '__toString'

Hi guys,

I have finished this lesson and I have my function as

 public function __toString()
    $output = "You are calling a " . __CLASS__ . " object with the title \"";
    $output .= $this->getTitle() . "\"";
    $output .= "It is stored in " . basename(__FILE__) . " at " . __DIR__ . ".";
    $output .= "This display is from line " . __LINE__ . " in method " . __METHOD__ . " method.";
    $output .= "The following methods are available for objects on this class: \n";
    $output .= implode("\n", get_class_methods(__CLASS__));
    return $output;

But the output I am receiving is:

setYield getYield setSource getSource getIngredients

Am I doing something basically wrong?

I am not getting syntax errors,

Many thanks,
