A question

Okay, so I just dug something out of the fridge that was so moldy with green mold that as I was cleaning it out, clouds of spores were wafting up. I was as far away from them as I could be, and have the suck-stuff-outside fan, but I wanted to know... food mold, that's pennicilin, right? So food mold isn't toxic or dangerous, is it? Please tell me I'm worrying for nothing?

Depends on what the food originally was. Citrus fruits cause penicillin. Other foods mold with different kinds. So long as you get it out of the place, you'll be fine. So long as it isn't black, you're fine.

Well that's good. It was growing on some pinto beans, and was definately green.

Huh! I thought penicillin was bread mold. I didn't know it grew on citrus fruits.

If stuff is going moldy you have too much food.

I'll cheerfully relieve of of some of the excess.

No, I don't have too much food, actually; it's just that the beans were wrapped in an opaque plastic bag and shoved to the back of the fridge, where I forgot about them.

Like I said. Too much food. If you didn't have excess food in there, you'd *know* what was in that container because you'd have checked it to see if you felt like eating it.

Doesn't feel that way to me. *Shrug*

Well if I suddenly turn into a walking mold, I'll know who to blame. :-D
