Ok

Well the risk is minimal . Just relax its going to be fine . In a worst case scenario, if you ate a slice bread inoculated with stachybotrys, a toxic house mold. This will, at the very least, mess with your respiratory system. You can have systems like cough , wheezing etc . In absence of any such symptoms i dont see any concerns.

Hope it answered your query.

Let me know if you have any more queries.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
