Humboldt Fog cheese question

Leslie T. | Sep 14, 200103:45 PM     9

I feel guilty even asking a question regarding food this week, and have earlier posted prayers and good wishes on other boards.

I bought a wedge of humboldt fog goat cheese maybe 5 or 6 days ago. I've noticed the remaining cheese has taken on some characteristics now and am wondering if it's still ok to eat (my first time with this cheese). The white powdery rind is now streaked with a darkish color mold, and part of the cheese consistancy has become a little runny on the edge. Can I eat the rind or do I cut it off? Same question for the runny part of the cheese...sorry for my ignorance on this.
