I cooked some chicken and left it out all night (12hours) in a sealed container.... Eat or no?
February 20, 2012 11:55 PM
Did you cook it with onions? If so no. I would :)

Does it look and smell OK? Probably safe enough.

I usually have food in a bag that I carry around with me all the time! I'd just try a few bites and if nothing happens within an hour or so... eat the rest up! I'd probably eat it ;D

My friend left rice (Disgusting I know cos of the bacteria, especially the ones that live on rice, that even heating won't kill them!) for 3 days and ate it whilst drunk, and she was completely fine!

I quoted? -.- clearly too early in the morning for me.

If it's cooked, it should be A-OK.
February 21, 2012 12:04 AM
Definitely not! It will have been I. The danger zone (5 and 60 degrees Celsius) for more than 20 minutes. You will make yourself sick

I wouldn't eat it. Why take the chance of getting sick. 12 hours is a long time to keep it sitting out.

How warm was your house overnight? I ask because I've just woken up and I'm sure my house is the exact same temperature as my refrigerator...if you didn't have much in the way of heating on, it'll be fine at this time of year.

I've done it a billion times ok maybe not that many but it's cooked and sealed I'd eat it unless it's been 80 degrees or above in your kitchen lol.

If it's cooked it should be ok ... Depending on your climate .. If it's warm where you live, I wouldn't chance it .. Not worth getting sick ... If it's cooler .. Should be alright !

no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would not eat chicken left out for 12 hours. But at least in the US for food handling it's more like 4 hours than 20 min before it's dangerous....

I am sure it's fine. People tend to freak out these days about food safety when it's not needed. It would be a shame to waste your chicken.
February 21, 2012 12:19 AM
Ick, I would say no. Even cooked chicken shouldn't reach the "danger zone" for more than a couple hours. That's kind of dangerous. I mean I am sure you won't die or anything, but that's not really safe to eat.
February 21, 2012 12:19 AM
I do it all the time, especially when we've had a roast and there's no room in the fridge. Obviously there's a risk but isn't that the same with everything? If you eat and it makes you sick there's no guarantee it was the chicken anyway, so many bugs going around you can get just as sick from thin air....just my opinion. Why waste food?

Ah well - at least any food poisoning will probably lead to weight loss wink
