i recently posted concern and discussion on the common infection of bacillus-wetspot on rye and spawn. it has been determined that bacillus-substilis the specific bacillus found in rye and common in nature is not toxic to humans.
"The use of B. subtilis in an industrial setting should not pose an unreasonable risk to human health or the environment. First, human health and environmental hazards of B. subtilis are low. Second, the number of microorganisms released from the fermentation facility is low. In addition, B. subtilis is ubiquitous in the environment, and the releases expected from the fermentation facilities will not significantly increase populations of this bacterium in the environment."
"In conclusion, the use of B. subtilis in fermentation facilities for the production of enzymes or specialty chemicals has low risk. Although not completely innocuous, the industrial use of B. subtilis presents low risk of adverse effects to human health or the environment."
any comments are wanted and welcome!!!

There are other species of bacillus... some thrive in soil, such as bacillus anthracis, the cause of anthrax. Of more concern are clostridium which are similar to bacillus except they are anaerobic. The cause of botulism is Clostridium Botulinum. It is very difficult to know what you have outside of the lab whenever contamination is involved. There is a lot of nasty stuff out there that can make you sick... if Bacillus Subtilis is growing in one corner, something worse could be growing in another. Contamination should always be tossed, safe ore not.
