Talking

I think it'll be fine.
I'd cook it up.

Chances are that it is OK, but your are taking a chance. I would personally never leave poultry out for that long. Always defrost in the fridge, never on the counter.

If it was out for 7 1/2 hours than I would toss it.

Most times, if you ever have to actually stop yourself and ask if something is still good, then toss it.

I wouldn't hesitate to cook and eat the turkey breast. I've been thawing raw, frozen meat in warm water for years and I've never been sick. To be absolutely safe, I agree with everyone else, just toss it. Personally, I think it's major overkill and a waste of meat but most of the folks here know better than I.

In most cases Damp you can do that and not have a problem. People do it their whole lives and never run into trouble. The one time that you do get sick though you will be wishing that you had been safer and you will never take a chance again

LOL! Well said, dude! I can only speak for myself on the matter but I agree, it's always better to be safe. I guess I'm one of the freaks that can eat just about anything without any ill effects!

Very true, GB. Nothing worse than a trip to the ER with food poisoning. That happened to my Dad once. I felt awful for him he was so sick. He, my mom, and I ate at the same restaurant. We had all the same dishes, except for one dish that he ate that was different. My mom works in the food industry and she always tells me to be on the safe side and toss it. Getting sick is not worth the risk.

Hi guys, wow, I really appreciate all of your impute! I've been food poisoned before (through no fault of mine own, lol) and it is a horrible experience. After taking all of your considerations to heart, and smelling the meat once more, I chucked it Just to be on the safe side. I hate to waste food (no sadly, Barbara we don't have any animals, otherwise I would have done that) but $5 worth of poultry is not worth being sick over the holidays for. Thanks again everyone, you were all so helpful :flower:
