I guess it all depends on how often you come into close proximity with the possible contamination. One shroomite (I forget the name, sorry) became very ill and ended up in hospital after taking a *huge* sniff of one of his colonized brf jars. Smell will give an indication and is usually the first but you shouldn't have to get that close to *smell* a problem. I guess if there is a contam within/underneath the casing there is less of a risk as long as the resulting fruit bodies haven't been contaminated. Basically bacteria is bad but can be dealt with, moulds are not so bad if caught early but if they're sporulating and pathogenic then thats a big problem.
Can a mold grow underneath the casing layer and still release spores?
