dairy promotion leaves no time for
getting in trouble.
“We encourage Erica to be in a
lot of promotions. The dairy prin

promotion for dairy products,”
Teresa said.
Dad has also gotten a few emo

involvement in the industry. He
said, “When other dairy farmers
comment on her speech, it gives
me a proud, good feeling.”
While Erica and her mom were

What To Do When Food
Turns Moldy
Mold tells us better than
words when we have kept left
overs too long. Molds are living
symbols of spoilage and decay.
They work so quickly that it
takes a bit of ingenuity to dis
pose of some foods before molds
Molds are actually fungi with
thread-like roots that spread
below the surface of food. A stalk
extends above the surface.
Spores at the end of the stalk
spread the mold from place to
place. They give mold its distinc
tive color.
Molds generally prefer a
warm, humid environment, but,
as we all know, some grow very
well in refrigerators. Molds

with high sugar or salt content,
which is why mold often appears
on jams, jellies, and salt-cured
No all molds are bad.
Penicillin, a well-known antibi
otic, is produced from two molds.
Molds also help in the produc
tion (especially the flavoring) of
some wines and cheeses.
A clean refrigerator can
retard mold growth. Now is a
good time to thoroughly clean
your refrigerator. Toss out old
food, and clean the refrigerator
walls and racks with a solution
of one tablespoon of baking soda
dissolved in one quart of warm
water. Check the temperature in
the refrigerator to make sure it
is below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Always inspect foods before

you buy them. Be especially
careful when buying cheese,
fresh fruits and vegetables, and
bakery products.
Even with the cleanest refrig
erator and your best efforts at
the supermarket, you food still
may be subject to mold growth.
If you see mold when you first
open a newly purchased package
or container and suspect it was
there when you bought it, you
owe it to the store management
to take the product back, or at
the very least, call the store.
Otherwise, the store’s manage
ment may never know it has a
storage problem.
If you see a bit of mold on
hard or firm foods such as hard
cheese, firm-type fruits, such as
pears, and smoked turkey, it is
safe to remove one inch around
and below the mold spot with a
knife. Take care not to touch the
mold with your knife.
Molds spread quickly on soft
foods, such as bread, cake, cot
tage cheese, and jam. If you see
more than a speck of mold
growth on these foods, the best
advice is to throw them out.
When in doubt about a food’s
safety, it is best to throw it out.
Although we never want to be
wasteful with food, it is silly to
threaten our health by eating
spoiled foods.
Whatever you do, it is best
not to taste or even sniff mold.
Although it will not cause food
poisoning, it can lead to respira
tory problems or allergic refic
tions for sensitive individufils.
