Moldy bread

Patient

Q: I ate part of a sandwich with a little mold on it, I spit it out and rinse my mouth, Will I get sick?

Doctor

A:   The important thing is you identified the mold and avoided further exposure.  With the quantities you describe, it would be unlikely to cause any significant ill effects. The worst case scenario would be a day of stomach upset.
I hope this helps
Good luck
