Toxic Lipstick?
    #2961484 - 08/03/04 08:57 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Does anyone know if lipstick mold is toxic? We had a couple cakes that got infected and we cut out the infected parts and put them in an outdoor patch. If the cake still ends up fruiting, will the resulting mushrooms be safe? I'm having a hard time finding any info on lipstick mold, so any help is greatly appreciated.  :smile:

Lipstick mold is a Geotrichum species.


"Pathogenicity, Clinical and Environmental Significance

As well as being a colonizer of the intestinal tract, Geotrichum spp. may cause opportunistic infections in immunocompromised host and these infections are referred to as geotrichosis. The infections are usually acquired via ingestion or inhalation. Bronchial and pulmonary as well as disseminated infections and fungemia due to Geotrichum have been reported. It has also been isolated from infections resulting from trauma [55, 307, 656, 695].

Apart from its clinical significance, there are very recent claims on environmental damages that Geotrichum might have caused (go to article in the Telegraph). It has been blamed for destroying the aluminium and data-storing polycarbonate resin that are found in the structure of compact discs. This in turn led to discoloration of the disc, with the disc becoming partly transparent. The exact role of Geotrichum in this destruction process requires confirmation."
