There is always somebody around our office who gets something out of the fridge and isn’t quite sure if they can eat it, and Stace is always the first to come back with a very definite answer about what the rule is.

Kristie lives by Stace’s word when she’s thinking about eating chicken that’s been in the car for a while – “If the chicken sweated, don’t eat it”

Has this chicken got sweat marks on it? No – I’m in the green and so far there’s been no sickness

Some new facts that have come to light about whether or not you can still eat certain foods after they go mouldy, and we ran them by Stace to see how much she really knows.

Hard Salami

Stace was spot on with this one – Salami is made and stored in a dark place where mould is often around, it’s fine to eat mouldy salami after scraping it off.

Hard Cheese

This one is built around mould so it’s still entirely edible, just be sure that you don’t use the mouldy knife on something else after cutting it off.


Apples, Pears and other hard fruits are fine, you just cut around the small areas of mould and you’re good to go. Softer fruits like bananas and peaches are a different story, any sign of mould probably means that it’s contaminated below the surface.

Cooked Pasta

Stace and Kristie were BOTH wrong about this one. A thin top layer doesn’t make a difference. If you see any mould on your pasta, don’t go there. The same goes for yogurt, sour cream and bread.
