What are this black spots/disease On My Broccoli Sprout?

Broccoli    Singapore


I've noticed that approximately 20% of my broccoli sprouts have black spots on the leaves.

I have uploaded a picture of these black spots on a broccoli sprout.

Does anyone know what are these black spots? And, if it is still safe to consume these sprouts? (As it is difficult to sort from the other sprouts which do not have visible spots).

Is this Alternaria leaf spot or aspergillus black mold?

Many thanks for your time :)

Blackleg is the condition, it's a fungal disease that causes the sprout to rot.
Remove and destroy the inflected plant's immediately
