Are these cremini bad?

fldhkybnva Nov 10, 2012 04:28 PM

I have had these cremini for about 2 weeks in the fridge and planned to saute them tonight as I knew they would probably be heading to their last leg soon. However, they look a bit different than when I bought them 2 weeks ok. I read that spotted/speckled mushrooms are bad. Should I not tempt it or are these OK?

      Yes. They are very bad.

        Were they sliced before this evening? I've certainly sauteed and eaten mushrooms that were past their prime but they were always whole mushrooms where i could wash off the slime. Ugh, sorry.

          Nope, presliced. OK 3/3 no-hesitation toss, out they go.
