Default White mold on Sauerkraut - is it safe?

I just bought a jar of organic unpasteurised sauerkraut from my local health food shop and when a I opened it I found the sauerkraut covered in spots of white mold. Is this safe to eat or should I take it back to my local health food shop? Please advise.

When I bought the jar of sauerkraut there was brine leaking from the lid. I asked the shopkeeper for another jar but that jar was leaking too from the lid. I bought the jar of sauerkraut anyway but when I opened it the sauerkraut wasn’t submerged in the brine and I seen white specs of what I think is white mold.

Default Sauerkraut - Is it safe?

I googled it and ,, discovered ,, it's,,

Sauerkraut (/?sa?.?rkra?t/; German: [?za???k?a?t] (listen), lit. 'sour cabbage') is finely cut raw cabbage that has been fermented by various lactic acid bacteria.[1][2] It has a long shelf life and a distinctive sour flavor, both of which result from the lactic acid formed when the bacteria ferment the sugars in the cabbage leaves.[3][4]

So ,,,,,,,, it's cabbage ,, fermented in bacteria ,, left to ferment for a long time ,, and people eat this!!



I'm sure it's delicious ,,



Like yoghurt ,,



But ,, if I did buy some and it looked suspicious I'd definitely take it back!

if a jar leaks just throw it away, it's bad stuff...

Throw it away and dont buy it again. All you lost is the price of a jar of cabbage.

I was actually going to take it back to the shop and try and get a refund as the sauerkraut was quite expensive or exchange it for something else in the shopget something else in the shop.

I took the jar of sauerkraut back to the shop and the shop assistant agreed that the sauerkraut did look dodgy and asked me what I would like to do.

I told her I would like to exchange it for something else but unfortunately there was nothing there at the same price to exchange so I had to pay the £1 difference on something else I seen in the shop.

I thought the shop would of had the decency to give me the exchanged item for the same price as the sauerkraut due to the inconvenience but they didn’t. I had to pay the difference.

i buy it, the taste is fine, bit different when you first try it.
considering its fermented for ages why does the jar say consume within 3 days of opening?
the jars are so big i split it into smaller glass jars and freeze it.

If it has to be consumed within three days once opened, then it goes off once the air starts getting to the contents. If the jar was leaking, it's possibly been taking in air for much longer than three days, so dump it and get a refund. Also if the jar has leeks, it is possibly from wales.
