  1. Hi, I have a question about whole BABY BELLA mushrooms which I bought at a health food store yesterday late afternoon to cook for today. After opening the package the tops of the mushrooms have a sticky film on the them, are they okay to use?

  2. Good question, Marie. In the article “How to Tell When Mushrooms Are Bad” from CookingLight magazine, it is stated that “a slimy film is the telltale sign of a spoiled mushroom.” In that case, we would agree that it’s probably best to follow the sage advice – when in doubt, throw it out. Hope this helps!
