Question

If chili has been left out overnight is it still safe to eat?

I made ground turkey chili in the crock pot...I worked late last night, came home and fell asleep on the couch...my husband had some chili, unplugged the crock pot but didn't put the rest away...is it safe to eat or does it need to be tossed?

Answer

No, bacteria can develop on food at room temperature after a few hours.

I'd say its good as long as you heat it up to at least 165 degrees on a themother?

The meat will grow bacteria if not refridgerated after cooking. I would toss it.

Food poisoning is a terrible thing to fool with.

Sorry! Feed it to the disposal.
