Cheesecake left out all night, Throw it out, Right? - Page 2

post #16 of 28
As my husband would say..."It's better to toss it now than for you (and your Easter guests) to toss it later!"

Throw it away!

it's my understanding from food safety classes that 4 hours is the critical point for ANY cooked food, as bacteria starts to grow and reproduce at a certain temp and as time goes on, RAPIDLY starts reproducing. It's a "snowball effect". To be safe, cover food left at room temp, fridge it at 2 hours.

totally throw that cheesecake out

Edna I think some of those cream cheese filled turnovers you buy at bakeries actually use a cream cheese flavored filling out of a sleeve, which is safe at room temp.

I know you can keep eggs and butter out overnight but I didn't think you could leave cream cheese out that long. I would think that the sugar in a cheesecake would preserve the cream cheese enough to keep it from being too harmful but.... I wouldn't risk it either. I don't leave cream cheese icing out at room temp very long either. I'm really picky when it comes to food that could spoil. Ugh. (One time I offended my stepmom because I have a habit, before giving it to my kids, of sniffing a gallon of milk if I'm not the one who bought it and checked the date! I didn't think about it but she was standing there watching me and was highly offended that I would think she had spoiled milk in her fridge! Oops!)

What's to get offended about. I've bought milk a couple of times in my life where the date was good but the milk wasn't. I do the same thing before giving it to my kids to as I don't drink whole milk and that's my way of making sure it's ok.

I'm known for my dislike of waste.

But I would dump it. I'm also known for being a stickler for safety.

Me too! I always smell pretty much everything before using it.

I've also offended people by rinsing out their drinking glasses they've given me. icon_redface.gif

Well probably you should throw it out. Once I did eat a piece of cheese cake that was left out overnight, and I was fine. I questioned it for awhile, but I REALLY wanted it. I think food safety has come to a whole new level. My mom says that when my grandma was young they used to leave (cooked) meat out for days!

What you do in your own home is your business, but you wouldn't risk selling a product that is temp critical. When in doubt....throw it out. My dad was the family cook and this was his motto that I have adopted.
