How do I know if it's Safe
    #2257189 - 01/20/04 08:48 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

How do you know if a shroom is safe. My buddy had a cake that he thought was contamed because of some discoloration near the top of the jar. But the bottom is pinning and they look great. How do you know if the shroom is safe to eat?

if it's from a contamed cake, it's best not to eat it.

What is the reason for this?

I'm not questioning your diagnosis; contaminated cakes get thrown out at my house. I'm just curious about the reasoning behind this belief. Does the mold from the cake somehow get into the fruit body of the mushrooms?

mold spore is very small, and bad for you. it can cover a terrarium and be on everything in it. Unless the mold was very bad, you probably get more mold exposure just by going outside, but no one on this board is gonna reccomend you eat a shroom from a contamed cake. It's just blanket advice that keeps ppl from hurting themselves.

Discoloration is likely to the excretement from the mycellium, its own special brand or urine if you will. If it is yellowish then you have your answer. If it is blue then you probably have a bruised cake. All other situations would probably be best diagnosed in the contamination forum..

Misterblack, basically when the mold affects the mushroom it rots the mushroom so its very obvious when you have infected mushrooms, I have never seen any evidence of molds infecting from anything but contact with the fruitbody but thats not to say it does not happen.

I would venture that many consume mushrooms off contaminated cakes here, but simplemachine is correct in that nobody will be responsible for suggesting someone else does it, because there is a level of experience required to make the decision. This really only applies to common infections such as cobweb and trich (and not bacteria, thats just bad news all the way).

the effects of many of these molds may not be redily aparent...I've eaten from a contaminated cake and it was like mild food poisoning... had I eaten more than one it could have been worse and had I tripped while eating several it wouldnt have been a very pleasant experience...

The discoloration at the top of the jar could be bruising, if it's begining to dry out it will become blue to a gray color
