Does contamination before sterilization ruin a PF jar?
    #4306931 - 06/17/05 10:53 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

two days ago I began to prepare my substrate and then I had to go out of town before I could boil them. Now every jar seems to have wispy white contamination (probably cobweb). I have a 15 psi pressure cooker and I want to know if I can still use the jars. Most of the substrate still hasn't been consumed. I'm pretty sure that boiling the jars now will kill off the mold, but does this eliminate the health risks? Thanks to anyone who helps me out with this.

This is the exact same as asking if you can resterilize jars which were sterile and then got contaminated. I asked this and was told by everybody to toss them. I still have to see a study showing that toxins are carried through to the fruit bodies.
