  • YA usually. But we also freeze our bread so it doesn't go bad. Dh goes thru it fast anyways.

  • If it's bread you have to throw it away. The mold spores have gotten on everything in the bag. Other foods like cheese or sour cream you can scrape off the top or cut off the portion.

  • Mold starts out as tiny fibers too small to see. If you can actually see it anywhere, that means it's multiplied so much it's accumulated. Once you see it, that means the fibers have already worked through the entire loaf.

  • Yes I do, because bread hides mold better than almost any food does!

  • Yeah, what pp said. The inside of the bread bag has moisture and so the mold is everywhere.
