So, if you made and ate some banana bread and then found mould on the outside of the bag of flour....

.....would you be worried?

As far as I can see the flour itself isn't mouldy, but there is some green mould on the outside of the bag. Two other bags of flour in the cupboard are VERY mouldy and I have thrown them all out.

Would cooking kill any toxins? Should I be worried that I (12 weeks pg) and my 2 yo son both had some?

Well, we're all still alive, so far. I think you're right about not eating any more, which is a shame, as it was really nice!

Read some scary stuff about mycotoxins on the net though (note to self - never research strange poisons on the internet) so I think it might be best not to eat it just in case.

I've eaten mouldy bread before (well it was actually toast). By the time I realised it was mouldy I'd already eaten half of it sad

I was fine. I just felt a little repulsed.

I'd eat it! It's on the outside of the bag! The cake's been cooked, be a real waste to throw it away. No one's going to get sick!!

I'm kind of nervous now, what with being pregnant and all.

Mouls won't kill you though, don't worry about it.

It was only on the outside of the bag, and the cake's been cooked.
