hi, I am kind of a worrier about my personal health, especially since i have asthma so hear me out...

I work in a gas station and every saturday we receive milk orders. I guess there was a leak in one of the jugs a long time ago and it started to mold inside one of our refrigerators. The mold is brown to light brown, stinks of old milk of course and has black tar looking pieces in the mold. I am not sure if it is all part of the mold growth but I just worry because I've been told that such a growth is very unhealthy. I just realized it was there today because it growing in the very back of the refrigerator but the smell is very strong and causes a stench to remain on all of the bottles. Should i be concerned before i clean it up? i don't want to have any contact with some type of poisonous growth. thanks for the help...

Better to clean it I'd think, right away....you could wear an N-95 mask for protection.

Hello- I am brand-spankin' new to this forum (my family & I have only just evacuated our home and are all very sick). I was really just browsing through the posts, etc. ... But I wanted to tell you that if you feel you must be the person to do the cleanup job, wear a Respiratory Mask and protective gloves (dipped in Nitrile) at the very least. The cleaning process will disturb the mold spores-- which will disturb the mycotoxins that are stored inside the spores (from what I've learned)... and if you breathe in any of that stuff you could get sick. I am guessing that is what happened to me about a month ago... I must've made that mold pretty angry, because I experienced terrible vomiting afterward. Good luck 2U.... Bttrfly2B
