Molds, that's a kind of fungi, everything like bread, chicken, cheese.. has "hyphae" (fungi's cells). but these hyphae becomes molds when it's humid (fridge) then the temperature raises (when you take them out). However, when mold spores are present in large quantities (obviously your case), they can present a health hazard to humans, potentially causing allergic reactions and respiratory problems. But if not, you'll just feel a more acid taste, no side effects.
Anyway, it's better to clean your fridge, because mold spores can spread fast.
