Dear all,


Can we consider food spoilage (yeast and mold) with biological hazard? According what i have read, yeast and mold does not considered as hazard. Please comment.

Generally speaking Y&M can be considered microorganisms important for shelflife and food spoilage. In certain case these can lead to issues relating to Mycotoxins and Aflatoxins which are food safety hazards. So it depends on the product etc. You should do a little research this subject as it can be complex.

Well said George.
Most of the toxic metabolites (mycotoxins) are stable up on preparation (cooking etc...) even though the organisms are destroyed during preparation.Also some mycotoxins can lead to allergenic conditions which may cause a health hazard.
