Presuming you used glass jars, discarded the cake immediately. I wouldn't think there'd be a problem provided you properly cleaned the jars after words.

i have re-used contam. jars.....soaked them in bleach then washed and rinsed, then tossed them in the steamer for about 2 hrs. they were ok after that.

they sell a really good microbial scrub that will kill ANY virus or contamination, but i think you can only buy it from medical suppliers. Its darn good though.

If you are attempting to reuse contaminated jars and are steaming them for that purpose, you would want them to be empty. Make sure that you dispose of the contaminated substrate outside (away from your work area and the inside of your home).
