    Default help - my crumpet had some mould!!

    just woke up and halfway through my crumpet when i tasted the tineesit bit of mould



    i looked and sure enough there was another tiny spot!
    what should i do? should i go make myself sick?
    freaking out - the rest looked fine and we only bought them yesterday!

    i saw on tv the other night that bacteria in on bit of mould spreads right through the item - and it usually has all sorts of bugs! really scared its going to hurt the bub? help?

    thanks so much for the reassurance girls - v relieved to hear i'm not the only one!
    there's so much hype about avoiding bacteria, and blue cheeses etc it's easy to freak yourself out!

    ...and yes - crumpets are the worst for mould! grrrr... because they are soooo good for m/s! (normally)
