Hey everyone,

I just opened a brand new jar of alfredo sauce, and I did what I always do: wipe the edge of the jar with my finger to eat that little excess on the side and then pour it in the pot. However, after I did that, I realized there was some mold surrounding a bug in two spots on the top of the jar... There definitely wasn't mold where I ate some alfredo, but when I poured it out the sauce was chunky, and I don't think the last jar I bought of that was chunky...

Do you think that little bit I ate will make me sick?

And of course, I will not be buying that brand of sauce EVER again

Throw it out and relax - I'm fairly certain your stomach acid/immune system will take care of such a small amount. Eating a little bit may not harm you, but throw the science experiment out.

If you start to feel ill and have vomiting and diarrhea, at least you know what caused it - and if it lasts more than 24 hours go to emergency as you would be at risk of de-hydration.

BUT...I doubt you'll get sick.

I doubt that little will make you sick unless you have a seriously compromised immune system. I'd bring it back to the store and get a refund!
