Why did the liquid in my dill pickles turn pink?

Rating: 90

Using overmature dill may cause this. If so, the product is still safe. However, yeast growth could also cause this. If yeast growth is evident, discard the pickles. Yeast growth may also make pickles cloudy or slimy. Source: Original FAQ posted at
