Is it safe to remove the mouldy part of food and eat the rest?

Moulds produce filamentous (feathery) structures, called hyphae. These hyphae can branch and grow over and through the food. There is no way to determine how deep it has grown within the food. It is, therefore, safest to throw away mouldy food.
