Are my raw taters ok?

I bought a bag of baby red taters...it was a zip top bag that the grocery store had pre packaged. Well...a week later it has condensation in the bag and a moldy smell. I found one little tater that had some fuzz on it. The others look fine, but still smell musty/moldly after washing.

When in doubt throw it out?

I believe they are fine.

But the question is would you feel happy eating them?

I heard (can't remember where or if it was even a reliable source) that if a potato has green or is green that is poison. Is this true?

Sorry I know that didn't answer the question asked. I do know that I dislike the smell or taste if the potato is musty.

Yeah the green stuff is poisonous, but you would have to eat a carload to make yourself sick.

The green is poison, but only the green. If you cut that part off then they non green parts are fine to eat.

Do you think that cooking them will get rid of the odor?

Try to remember to read instructions on the bag. Quite often it says to put the taters into the fridge.....and as for smelly potatoes....I would dump 'em!

OK. That sucks. Out they go. I don't know if I could eat them even if they are OK.
