I just bought a big P and it tasted like mold inside. The outside was not mold colored or smell. When will we get enough of this haphazard way of protection from a clearly fractured Gov. Any ideas?

I cut that part off and only ate two slices from the middle of the pineapple. It smelled mildly fermented but tasted sweet. There was no mold visible. But I realized twelve hours later when I couldn’t stop vomiting that I had forgotten to rinse any mold off the knife. I have a chronic illness that must have made me more sensitive and am on a pain management for degenerative spine disease, so after I couldnt keep my pain meds down and threw up after just a few tiny sips of water I started experiencing compounding effects from withdrawal from my meds. And the pain became so unbearable I needed to go to the er – needles to say I’ll never eat a moldy pineapple again.

A bit like bananas being more black than yellow when they are ready. I ate so many mouldy pineapples, they taste the best. People freak out way too much about produce looks, no wonder half goes to waste…

I have thrown out several pineapples thinking we might get sick from the mold. All mold was confined to the very bottom around the cut area. Now I can get back to the business of saving money by not discarding my delicious fruit.

The USDA does its best to protect consumers and that usually involves over reacting to many things. The mold on the pineapple is not that big of an issue, the majority of people will not get sic from it. cutting the bottom off is completely fine. In fact you can actually use the moldy skin to make pineapple beer…which I have made many times.
