|Number one thing I fear with vegetables is a yellow rot that comes especially with green leaf vegetables, especially lettuce and represents a serious food poisoning problem which can extreme cases cause hair and fingernails to fall out as well as bleeding problems.|
If you've ever seen cattle with hair falling out in patches in spring, its due to this getting to them in spoiled silage. Safety; if the vegetable has turned to yellow mush, throw it out.
For a considerable time this was frequent problem with bagged, precut salad vegetables at the stores. Recently, they've apparently gotten the problem under better control and the bagged precuts stay stable a week or more, so long as the seal isn't broken. Sometimes a convenience for me since that entire bag becomes a standalone meal, ready to eat with a toss into a salad bowl and a dash of salad dressing, maybe few peanuts, soda crackers on the side.
