Is it safe to eat?
    #1353052 - 03/05/03 05:54 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)


my cat cracked it open, and the inside was completely clean, all nice and white. The green contam had no smell. He accidentally touched it and this green dust was on his paws. He wants to know if they're safe to eat because the center didn't get contaminated, most of the mushrooms are on the other side of the contam.

I wouldn't risk it. If the cake is that heavily contaminated then the contams have been growing for awhile. The contams have probably been there since the shrooms started growing...meaning there is a greater chance that the shrooms could be harmful compared to shrooms that are fully mature and a contam pops up the day you harvest.

Is green mold that grows on the casings the same that grows on bread. If it is then its pretty much harmless. I accidentaly ate a shit load of green mold on bread once and nothing happened. Thats why I was curiouse!

I was looking at this link and all the had to say about green mold is that shrooms won't grow there and it reduces there crop. Nothin about eating the food that has grown near the grean mold. (Not trying to bust balls...just curiouse) click below GREEN MOLD

I've seen that. but it doesn't say anything about it being dangerous if ingested or toxicity. I'll just play it safe and not eat it.

The most common bread mold is aspergillus. One species, aspergillus niger is toxic to humans and can cause skin and pulmonary infections which can result in death if untreated.

Macroscopic observation is not sufficient to make a positive identification of contamination. There are many organisms that will grow on mushroom spawn and appear green.

I know a guy that got shot in the head and lived. Just because he got lucky doesn't mean that getting shot in the head isn't dangerous.
