    i forgot to put some uncooked sausage links(hot italian) back in the freezer and left them out overnight. they started out as frozen....they've been out of the freezer for about 24 hours now, but probably took a few hours to de-thaw.

    so, should i cook them and eat them (they'll probably go into a pasta sauce actually). or, should i just play safe and throw them away?

    My mom always threw out things we accidentally or lazily left out over night. Pizza was the only acceptation for some reason. I'm sure it will produce some risk especially being a meat product and uncooked. I think if you will be cooking them fully though it should kill the bacteria. DO IT!

    It's fine, especially in sausage form where the meat is usually pretty salty and the casing also acts as a barrier between the meat and open air, preserving it for longer.

    Have a close look at it under good light conditions and smell at it.
    It's probably safe to eat, but if in doubt throw it away.

    It will indeed kill the bacteria, but not the toxins they've produced.

    ^ absolutely. there is some terrible advice in this thread already

    you cannot see, taste or smell the bacteria which will have grown, nor the toxins they may have produced (which is not deactivated by cooking).

    you should throw them away.

    Yeah, i'm going with *definitely* throwing them away I have a thing about food being left out overnight, but having had severe food poisoning (the sickest i've ever been in my 34 years on earth) i tend to err on the side of caution.

    ServSafe standards say throw them out as they've been abused by FAT TOM.

    Addi P says throw them out because you cannot see or smell all bacteria.

    They were probably taken out in the late evening after work, then bypassed prior to work in the morning, therefore left out until the evening after work--That's what I figured anyways.

    I mean I've eaten things a few days over the 'best before' date (not use by, they're different apparently) but there's no way I would eat anything left out overnight which is perishable.

    It depends on the type of curing employed (that will determine how ready of a substrate said sausages will be for bacterial growth).

    Have you decided one way or the other, OP? It's now three days after you first leaving them out. By this point, they belong in the landfill.

    well, if you want to get into word games....

    i guess i should have said "all day & overnight".

    regardless, they were unrefrigerated for about 24 hours.

    lol it was out for a day. in my opinion, if food appears to be good, you're good to go. some people really lost touch with their food. i've accidentally eaten mouldy toast on one occasion. guess what happened? (; i also eat stuff that has been in the fridge for a week after cooking (leftovers). don't be a bunch of pussies... (;
    i also can't stand people who throw out food, because it's gone over the date.

    Yeah... um, bagseed - eating refrigerated leftovers that are a week old or a bit of mouldy toasted bread (hell, i'm sure most people have done that without realising) is a little different from eating meat that has been left unrefrigerated, etc, for 24 hours. It's simply not worth the risk. People need to use common sense when it comes to best before dates - things like preserves and other condiments use those dates as a guide, but meat - you just can't fuck around with whether or not it's good or bad.

    As an aside, when i was in high school, i helped a friend defrost and clean out her chest freezer - we were chipping away at ice, and all of a sudden something appears in it (near the bottom of the freezer). As we got closer, we saw this orangey-yellow chunk of something in cling-wrap on a Styrofoam tray. When we freed it from the ice, we saw a label with just-legible writing. It was 500g of mince and the best before date was in 1987... we found it in 1993.

    (you want to take the Pepsi challenge on that, Bagseed? )

    nothing? of course nothing happened - there's a difference between toast and uncooked meat from a bacterial point of view.

    i get it. you're an tough guy. congrats. eat what you like. but advising others that nothing will happen if they eat uncooked meat that's been sitting out for a day flies in the face of what bluelight's about - harm reduction.
