Default Mold in Reused Bottle got into Bottling Bucket!

I've got a hot mess on my hands.
I bottled an IPA this weekend after rinsing all bottles with hot water and running them through a sanitation cycle in my dishwasher. When bottling I realized that I had forgotten the priming sugar. So, I had to return some of the filled bottles back to the bottling bucket. When I poured out the beer I saw some gunk/mold/fungus pour out of the reused (but sanitized) bottles. I immediately picked that crap out of the bottling bucket and bottled the remaining beers.
Do I have a problem on my hands here? Is this beer ruined? Please help!!!

Are you sure it wasn't just trub? If its trub, hops, etc, it's no big deal.

Thanks for the quick reply!
No it was that gunk/mold that forms on empty bottles for sure.

Does anyone know what that stuff/gunk at the bottom of old bottles is? Will it infect a batch? Can it make you sick?

My guess is nothing will happen. And even if it did get infected, it would only hurt the taste, it wouln't make you sick.

No effects at all!!! Tasted the brew this weekend and its delicious. Very happy with the result and I was clearly overreacting. Thanks for the moral support along the way all! Happy brewing!!!
