Okay. I left a package of frozen (about 1.5 lbs) ground beef on my counter last night from 7 pm to 12 am this morning.
It was in a foodsaver vacuumed bag sealed and was only slightly chilly when I picked it up and put it in the fridge.
I want to make stuffed peppers today.
Is it safe?

Sure it is RB. It was still frozen for much of the five hours.

I'd use it. It was vac sealed and still chilly, not warm or room temp.

If it is from a large commercial manufacturer it may not have been safe to begin with

Har, har...

I agree, people have different tolerances. We regularly eat left over rice left in the rice cooker 24 hours later.
Just last night my wife made a large pot of beef curry and we had some of that for dinner. The pot, still 3/4 full, was left on the stove top all night. This morning I packed some of that and some rice to take for lunch. I put my lunch in the fridge when I got to work.

Well it was closer to room temp that it was to fridge temp.
It was almost at room temp. Just a bit lower in the middle.
I will use it!

Thanks All!

Why? Why not refrigerate?

Oh, we do, if we don't forget. Or we simply don't have that extra space in the fridge for the big pot.
Sometimes, the pot is still too warm to put in the fridge before going to bed so it sits out all night...
