Is "Vegetable Mold" on a Tampon harmless?

This is relevant to the latest incident about an unused Tampon discovered to have what appears to be MOLD. The company's reply to the consumer's complaint claimed that a similar incident occurred and studies found that the "mold" culprit was a specie usually found on vegetables and bread products. They also claimed that the mold was "not harmful". Is it? Please share your thoughts on the matter...
