Default Mold Issue

I just had my house remodeled. They painted the closet with paint that did not have ammonia. Apparently the manufacturer deleted ammonia to make the pain more Green. After painting the closet had a bad smell and the contractor check the paint and said it was from the paint. They repainted the closet with Zinser 123 (originally they were supposed to use Kilz, but didn’t because of the longer dry time) and then another coat of paint. It still smells like a can of condensed chicken soup or urine. The contractor showed me the mold in the unused paint and promised the painters would correct it. So far they haven’t been able to. Any suggestions? I need information as the contractor doesn't think it's that big of deal. Well he doesn't live here!

I would make sure they get all that old paint out of there and start over even if that means re plastering the walls. It is their responsibility to make it right. They should be contacting the paint manufacturer but that has nothing to do with you.
