Hey all,

Found this inside a 1-2 week old package of hummus dip.

Looks like some sort of slime mold to me.
Can anyone identify what it is? Is it harmful? Never seen it anywhere else before, where could it have come from?

Any replys are appriciated

It's almost certainly a mold, but I doubt it's a slime mold. Typically Slime Molds occur out doors on rotting wood or other material.

Unfortunately I have no idea how to identify a hummus mold. Mold spores are ubiquitous so almost every food item in your refrigerator probably has them, but they usually don't germinate (or whatever fungi do), especially in the refrigerator.
