In brief: Food poisoning!
I would be careful about eating any food which has not been stored properly.
This can allow bacteria and other organisms to grow and multiply. Some molds are benign and some are not. This can deliver a load of toxins to your intestinal tract. It is not sufficient to cut off the mold, because there may be more in the rest of the product.
