Ugh...Is this dangerous?
    #694260 - 06/22/02 12:18 PM (21 years, 8 months ago)

I just realized, when I opened a contaminated jar, that I smelled it. Not alot, and I didn't take several big deep breaths or anything, but I was wondering -- are there any potentially harmful or deadly bacteria that commonly contaminate PF TEK jars?

I'm paranoid, so after I smelled the jar I realized that it may be a problem, and I thought I'd ask...

Yeah. My mistake. Like I said, I didn't take gigantic breaths over and over or anything, but I still wish I hadn't done it. Hopefully nothing will come of it.

Have you ever heard of someone having a health problem because of a situation like this?

Yes, someone posted a thread, they got really ill from smelling a jar. Not to worry you too much, what sort of contamination was it? Can you describe it, looks/smells?

Good luck

"Not to worry you too much, what sort of contamination was it? Can you describe it, looks/smells?"

I didn't see anything. It was a contamination in a very young stage, I guess, because there was no visible growth or anything. It smelled pretty funky though. I'm not sure what I'd compare it to, I can't really remember the smell very well (I guess that may be a good sign, heh).

I didn't shake the jar up or move it much or anything, so hopefully, if there were deadly bacteria/fungus/spores/etc in there, they didn't come flowing directly into my lungs through my nose. Blech.

i smell the rotten apple smell all the time.. no harm so far, so don't be worried. if you get sick you can take a 5 day antibiotic to knock it out.

Does the fact that the contam has only had 2 days to grow make it less likely that it produced any significant amount of toxins for me to inhale? How advanced do most contaminations get when people have problems with them?

Isn't it a somewhat common habit to smell jars to check for contamination? I'm the type that gets paranoid and worries easily...I was just wondering if getting sick from smelling jars is somewhat uncommon..

It is common to smell jars for contams and its somewhat dangerous. Did you read that last thread I posted? Do you know everything you're allergic to?

Just be cautious and use common sense and definitely never take a BIG whiff of anything you are worried about.

I'd hate to see this happen to anyone else.

"Did you read that last thread I posted?"
Yes.

"Do you know everything you're allergic to?"
I know of nothing I'm allergic too. I've never had an allergic reaction.

"I'd hate to see this happen to anyone else."
Yeah...I wish it was more 'common knowledge' not to smell contams...I wouldn't have messed with it had the dangers been obvious to me. Hopefully I won't get sick or anything.
