This silicone spatula
has post-mold spots on it, after cleaning. What are they?

After leaving the dregs of a broccoli soup in its covered pot for the better part of a week, I had a moldy mess to clean up. The stainless steel pot cleaned up fine, but the spatula now has two dark spots on it. It looks similar to what would happen if someone held a match under something for just a little while and left some soot on it. I've scrubbed it a few times, and its not coming off. What is this dark mold-remnant, and is it safe to use anymore? It's right on the food-scooping part, so I'm extra curious.
