Aspergillus clavatus is a species of mold that is widespread and frequently found growing in soil and animal manure. It’s common in foods like cereals.
A. clavatus is occasionally pathogenic and is capable of producing mycotoxins, specifically, the toxin patulin, which may be associated with disease in humans and other animals. A. clavatus is also allergenic, causing hypersensitivity pneumonitis (also known as “Malt Worker’s Lung”).
