Asked by bstar3 (182 points ) June 3rd, 2010

Their’s nothing to eat in this house and i’m hungry! Theirs a pot of food that’s been in the fridge for about 3 – 4 days now. But theirs a white layer on top that’s covering half of it. The food has been covered. What could this be? Mold?

Probably mold, but depending on what the food is, it could be congealed fat.

It could also be a layer of ice crystals if it was too cold in there.

What is the food? Stew? . Could it be a layer of fat? I’d eat it.
But then again I’d eat anything.

What’s in the pot? What does the white stuff look like? Is it fuzzy, smooth, greasy, solid, liquidy?

It’s a sign not to eat it.

Most likely it’s mold, from the saliva of someone sticking a spoon into the pot and eating whatever it is right out of the pot.

Could 3 or 4 days really be more like 5 or 6 days? Not sure? Don’t eat it.

If you can’t positively identify it, please don’t eat it. Better to go hungry for a while than risk poisoning yourself.
