ate hamburger bun, after eating and making more burgers, pulled out last bun and it was very moldy. Did not notice any on other buns, but if the one had it it is possible the others as well but not noticeable.

OK. No problem here with that. The type of mold that grows on bread is really harmless to the GI tract and the stomach acid destroys it anyway. No different from eating cheese that has mold on it as a natural part of it's production. It should cause you no symptoms at all other than, perhaps, a little nausea for a while.
