Atta boy!! "Maybe three hours" just isn't worth the chance. Live and learn.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

What about those open air Asian markets I see on TV. Not arguing, just wondering how they survive. Are thier digestive systems just tougher?

I suppose tolerance is different for everyone. We had some kind of casserole we made when my niece was staying with us and it got left out. She woke up to go to school the next morning and chowed down on it. Said they do it all the time at home, no biggie, never been sick.

My system would have gone into shock and I'd be sick all day. Of course mayo can do that to me on its own, so I'm not exactly a good judge of food safety.

Are statistics in my favor?
In any case "they" recommend allowing meat that's been in the 'fridge to come to room temp before cooking.

Make sure you cook it fully and not just on the outside.
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

"They" don't recommend that for poultry but for red meat. And it's not the food safety experts that recommend that; it's TV chefs who don't know better.

And it doesn't actually work: http://www.seriouseats.com/2013/06/t...ing-steak.html
