I put a small fresh chuck roast in the crock pot with red potatoes yellow onions, garlic and baby carrots with beef broth and didn’t realize it wasn’t plugged in till an hour and a half later. I keep seeing where if food items are left out for two hours or more to discard it. Is it still safe to cook mine and eat it?
Can I refreeze cooked pinto beans after they have been thawed and refrigerated?
Hi mark, I had some pot stickers and orange chicken from a local Chinese-American restaurant and I had it delivered to my house. Not even two hours later I had an upset stomach and tried to sleep it off. Work up about a few hours later after tossing and turning from the pain to having horrible diarrhea ongoing for 12 hours now and I threw up 1 time. It’s all yellow liquid but I’ve completely emptied my stomach now. Do you think this restaurant made a slip up in how it was cooked or prepped? And would you call this Food born illness
Dear Mark, hope all is well.
I bought some commercially prepared **potato salad from Hannefords super market about a week ago. The package has a thin plastic seal over the potatoe salad that needs to be opened in order to eat some. I broke the seal and its been in the fridge ever since. I was going to eat some more of it tonight but wasn’t sure it would be safe, It has a USE BY JUN/20/23 stamped on its plastic container.
Ingredients: **Red Potatoes, Mayonnaise (Soybean Oil, Water, Egg Yolks, Vinegar, Salt), Water, Vinegar, Onion, Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Sugar, Black Pepper, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Xanthan Gum.
