Roast left out. Would you still eat it???

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created November 18, 2012 at 9:02 PM

Friday I made an expensive roast with the usual... potatoes, carrots, onions, corn, green beans, tomatoes. I cooked it all day, served it for dinner and left the crock pot on low overnight. Since I was sick with a cold thing Saturday, my husband left the roast on warm and enjoyed it. He unplugged it around 10 pm and left it out overnight. This Sunday morning around 10 he turned it back ON and warmed it up on low and wants to eat it. The roast looks and smells just fine. Is it still good???

I didn't say it isn't important/most important - but I am saying that the corn this person ate is not necessarily GMO. If you want to guarantee 99% of corn is GMO, please provide a citation. I do agree that A LOT of the corn sold in first world countries is GMO, but that still doesn't mean 99% or that the OP ate the GMO sort. I also agree that avoiding GMOs is important - it's one of my core dietary principles.

I'm sorry but GMO is the most important part- not the idea that its a grain. It destroys your gut, causes permanent liver damager and is cancer causing/among many other. Have you seen the 90 day rat study? I gurantee you that 99% of the corn in the world toda is GMO. This is meant to be informative. No need for such a harsh tone. People who are not open to information are close minded and should do there on research first.

How do you know it is GMO corn? All corn is not GMO or created equal. Not that being non-GMO makes it Paleo - it's still a grain, even if it's an heirloom maize pre-colonial variety. But we don't need to add GMO to it to make the point that it's not an ideal food.

We do that quite often. Unless someone has, for example, double-dipped and has left germs in the food...which we guard against.

If anything the cereal made you sicker from the gluten/gliadin/GMO BT toxins, artificial color/preservative, etc than a slightly fermented milk which is closer to a yogurt. :)

I'd eat it.

There is, of course, the opinion that any action that violates that many federal codes is probably an inherently good idea. Strap on the bicycle helmet and dig in!

FDA be damned, I'd eat it. When you don't have a ground meat, you don't have to worry as much: bacteria builds up only on surfaces, so when you seer a stake, or roast, well, a roast, that surface is sanitized by the heat.

If you're worried, but it back in the over at 500F for 15 minutes and you'll kill off anything that's accumulated overnight.

The problem with cooked meat is that it's dead and has no defenses against being consumed by bacteria or fungi, but this takes lots of time, and seasonings such as salt, and a dry surface rather than a moist one, provide a good barrier against it - it's not permanent, so you can't keep it out forever, but overnight is probably ok.

It doesn't mean there's zero chance that you won't get sick from it. You might have rodents or insects in your home that you're not aware of that may have brought pathogens with them, but if you didn't leave it out and open, but rather inside a closed crockpot, it's ok.

Food safety dictates no. Have I eaten meat that was treated In a similar fashion before? Yes. Have I ever had food poisoning in my life? No. But that really doesn't tell you anything because I might just not be susceptible to stomach bugs. Another person might have had a full intestinal meltdown from some of the weird crap I've eaten.

Official food safety answer is of course no. I do this all the time though. Your results may vary. It gets into the 40's in my house at night. I would not eat something left out in the summer. Heat it well if you are scared. Bacteria can not get into the center of the meat. If you have not used a dirty or licked utensil to introduce bacteria, the rest is probably fine too.

I'd eat it. But then, I don't refrigerate my eggs, so take that for what it's worth.

If it looks and smells fine, I would eat it. When I lived in Japan, I found that folks were much more lax about leaving foods out overnight, and reheating and eating them without question the next morning. I've never gotten sick from it! As long as it was just overnight, and you're going to reheat it before you eat it, I'd say it's probably safe to trust your nose.
