How do I know if my mushrooms have gone bad?

Asked by spendy (1446points) June 20th, 2008

Obviously, if they are really, really bad, I can figure that out. I’m just wondering when they have technically gone bad and what that looks like. More specifically, I grilled some Portabellas two days ago and they’ve been in the fridge, chillin’. :) Naturally, they’re limp and dark in color, since they were grilled. They smell fine…so are they?

If they pass the nose test and looks-wise you are still comfortable eating them, they should be fine.

If they kill you, they’ve gone bad.

Good Mushrooms Gone Bad!!

They become slimy and wrinkly when they are bad. They can make you very sick if you eat bad mushrooms. Don’t take a chance if you have your doubts.

Here’s a nice .pdf for ya. For some reason I couldn’t open Beast’s link.

“Call Guinness!”
” I’m gonna need that 130 bucks when you get a chance.”
“That’s not cool, man.”

Portabello Article This covers your question fairly well if you read through it. Has some interesting facts as well. But, with all food, be safe and follow the rule: “if in doubt, throw it out”.

Yeah, just use your best judgement. People have common sense for a reason. Don’t risk health, if your questionable.
