We just made nachos with shredded cheddar and monetary jack

This answer was rated:

We just made nachos with shredded cheddar and monetary jack cheese (Kraft brand in a bag). We melted the cheese on the nacho chips in microwave for 30 seconds. After we ate it I went to make another batch and some of the cheese at bottom of bag had green mold on it. Are we in danger of getting sick?

RickMD :

I am online and happy to help you with your question today.

RickMD :

Good news!

RickMD :

You will be fine. Eating a little bit of mold that grows on cheese will not hurt you at all.

RickMD :

There are actually some types of cheese where the "mold" on the outside is part of the flavor.

RickMD :

Does this answer your question to your satisfaction?

Customer: Whew! Thank you!
