That's not mold, it's like nylon bits or some other material Mad

Don't panic!! Just Check your tins for normal puffing of the tin from fermentation. If any are overly swollen I would open to check. If all if okay make sure you have a good amount of the small Mason or Ball jars on hand. Within the next two days I will be inspecting all of my tinned blends for overly large swollen ones!!The ones I have stored in large Rubbermaid tubs the blends are over ten years old.



KEEP ON STAYING CALM!!!

I still would not smoke it! You need to speak with a rep. again. Look at close with a magnifying glass. Look for fuzz along that white crap you said looks like nylon.



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

If you become short of breath just head to the ER. That definitely did not belong in the tobacco. If that ever happens again look at it close with a magnifying glass. No worries, might have just been a tampon string that was misplaced... lol! 5)



KEEP ON PUFFING BUT NOT THAT CRAP!!!

Those are slivers of the cardboard insert the tobacco packaged in. Most of the flake, plug, and crumble cake tobacco's from GLP, C&D, Capt Earle's etc. are packed in a cardboard tray. I think you'll be just fine, but if you have any doubts you can just send it on over my way for proper disposal Razz

That's what it looked like to me as well.  I mostly smoke Pease blends and almost all have some paper slivers in it that look like that.

The first pic however? That just looked awfull!!! THAT looked like some kind of mold.

Response from C&D on the second tin:
"It is tiny shreds of paper from the die-cut insert that the tobacco is wrapped in. We try to shake all the little slivered edges of those inserts loose, but inevitably some gets through. Simply brush it off the cake of Oak Alley before smoking."
