It is not made with "moldy cheese" it is made with a type of blue mold added to it during its manufacturing but, this mold is not harmful to humans. Blue cheese is part of the blue veined cheese group.

Blue cheese is made with a specific mold. If the cheese starts growing a different mold, I would not eat it.
Blue cheese (or bleu cheese) is a cheese that has had Penicillium cultures added so that the final product is spotted or veined with blue-gray or blue-green mold.
Cheese is molded on purpose. The blue in cheese is the color of mold.
Because of the blue color of the mold....
Generally, no. Food that has grown mold is usually a sign of it being spoiled. Consumption of mold can cause health hazards to humans such as respiratory infections. However some cheeses like, blue cheese, are deliberately cultured with mold in it. This probably not only gives the cheese a distinct taste but also helps prevent other molds from establishing themselves thus giving the cheese a longer shelf life.
BLUE CHEESE IS ALREDY MOLDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Blue cheese is called blue cheese because it's made from mold, but it is good mold not the bad. It also has blue-green veins in it. Blue cheese is not made from mold, it is made from milk, it is infected(intentionally) with penicillium to give it the characteristic blue veining and pungent flavor. The blue veining throughout the cheese is where it gets the name.
