Take one of the ones picked after contamination. cut it open (if its not dried) if it looks good it will be fine. if they are already dried i say eat it it wont kill you. i dont think anyway;

I've read that green mold likes damp surfaces with stagnant air. To that end, air out the casing much more and make sure that the casing layer is not too wet. If it is, don't mist at all. Wait until it looks like it's drying out then mist. If you continue to have problems, try using plain old vermiculite to case with. It may not be the best but it's the easiest to do. You can also scrape off the vermiculite after each flush to reduce the chances of later contamination.

You can cut out, or dig out the contaminated section, and plug it up with fresh casing. this will allow you to get a couple more flushes. drop the humidity a little and also drop the temp.. that there green mold likes it nice and toasty. that is why 70 is an ideal temp
