Does a mould make a beetroot poisonous or inedible ?

Lemon's mould for instance, makes penicillin, but it's green there, and I'm allergic to penicillin, would the white mould produce penicillin too?

Owing to the large number of fungal genera, can you please expand on how the mould developed, its characteristics or maybe a picture? That could narrow the question down. –  Satwik Pasani Jan 18 at 5:07
It was over a month in the fridge :D. –  Damjan Dimitrioski Jan 18 at 9:40
