    Shiitake mushrooms: What should they look like?

    I bought a 4-oz package of fresh shiitake mushrooms on Saturday (Jan. 10). On the outside, there's a little sticker that says, "Packed on 1/10." Fine. I noticed when I bought them, and now as I'm slicing them, they are a little "fuzzy" on the outside. Is this just what they look like, or is this a mold? Any help is appreciated. Martha

    Here are a few pics and yes they are a bit fuzzy around the edges...this is probably too late but I wasn't here at 8:00am but I hope this helps!

    Sneezles, thank you! I ended up using them in the Vegetable hot pot and I'm still here, so I guess all is OK. I was in another store last night and looked at their shiitakes and they, too, had a "bloom" on them. Now I know.
