DC accidentally ate a bit of mouldy, grated cheddar cheese out of a packet. What should I do?

Tell them to look more closely next time! It won't hurt them.

Absolutely nothing? He will be fine.

YummyHoney Tue 10-Jul-12 17:20:35

smile yes, but can't say it now or DC will panic - I said it's OK, but worried.

YummyHoney Tue 10-Jul-12 17:21:20

Really? No e-coli?

PrincessOfChina Tue 10-Jul-12 17:23:16

Cheese is mainly mould anyway. He'll be rate.

usualsuspect Tue 10-Jul-12 17:23:25

I just cut the mould off cheese, nothing to worry about.

MummyDoIt Tue 10-Jul-12 17:24:12

Stilton is basically mouldy cheese. He'll be fine!

iklboo Tue 10-Jul-12 17:25:53

He'll be fine. E-coli is a different bacteria strain to the one that turns cheese mouldy. smile

YummyHoney Tue 10-Jul-12 17:26:03

yes I know, but I read on the inernet that stilton and such-like are moulds grown in controlled conditions, and that it's not the same as mould growing in your fridge.

MrsMangoBiscuit Tue 10-Jul-12 17:28:31

Is your fridge not at least loosely controlled? grin I've eaten moldy cheese before, if it's fluffy I'll cut the offending bit off. Never had any problems from it.

Mould is fine on cheese, we pick it off bread too!

I love moldy cheddar cheese smile. I grew up nibbling mold off of cheese made from unpasteurised milk, too.

No, there won't be e-coli on mouldy cheese, unless the cheese was contaminated with it in the production phase.

DC will be fine, nothing to worry about.

YummyHoney Tue 10-Jul-12 18:12:18

smile Thank you all.

It's penicillin (so my mum used to say)

cutegorilla Tue 10-Jul-12 18:19:26

It was always called penicillin in our house too!

lessemin Tue 10-Jul-12 23:02:52

Adventureswithmoles! Thats disgusting. grin

I just ate quite a bit of mouldy cheddar cheese and now I am more than a little concerned. I do believe it's Penicillin but now I am beginning to have a head ache.

coldpepper Fri 11-Nov-16 13:18:39

Any comments or advice?

ilovesooty Fri 11-Nov-16 13:20:11

No. It's a zombie thread anyway.

Flisspaps Fri 11-Nov-16 15:35:31

ilove grin

I love eating the rind of proper cheddar. That can be a bit mouldy but it's still delicious. It's never affected me in anyway that I've noticed.
