Two pink dots
    #3292205 - 10/29/04 02:35 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Two small pink dots about 1/8" or 4mm in diameter appeared on rotini a few days after inoculation. They were both close to each other on the same piece of rotini and didn't get any larger over time. Mycellium took over soon after and it was marked with whiteout on the outside of the jar where the dots were because the piece they were on was right up against the glass.
Jars were not PCed, they were boiled for 45 minutes. Pink sounds like bad news to me. Should The Dude take the precaution of throwing out the part of the cake where the dots were or just case the whole thing?

My cat accidentally ate a spore print and washed it down with 'Keepers Brew' when I wasn't looking. He took a 'DUMP' in your Kit A and before I new what had happened I found these monsters! WHAT THE HELL IS IN THAT BREW!?!? $35.00 + S/H " - SporeTradingPost's 'Keeper': douchebag of the century!

It sounds like bacteria; regardless, there could be many more pink dots than the ones you can actually see. Imagine the centers of the jar, inside of the rotini pieces themselves. I wouldn't recommend chancing it, even though the odds are slim there would be a problem. 'Pink bacteria' include a buttload of harmless environmentals and a few opportunistic pathogens; the toxin/allergy risk can't be ruled out. That said, it's your decision, your comfort level.

Regardless, you should consider the one-time 45 minute boil not enough in your situation. You might consider adding a second boiling step [8-10 hours later or so] if PC just isn't an option. . .
