yeah... are you sure that the "white mold" isn't the mycellium.

What you have is green mold it is white before releasing it's spores. Green mold is also hard to fight. Cut out any signs of it and pray it doesn't return. It probably will though.

according to Stamets, sometimes using an alkaline substance or table salt on a small isolated area. some measure of prevention can also be achieved by increasing the alkalinity in the substrate prior to inoculation. i have sometimes succeded in removing small isolated spots of mold by physically digging it out and all the surrounding substrate, then sproaying what's left with hydrogen peroxide and if there is a gap where contaminants may fall onto uncolinized substrate, it may help to fill in the excavated areas with vermiculite soaked in peroxide. usually contaminated substrate will perform poorly even if it does survive.
