Game hen left on the counter for 2+ hours

I immediately put it back in the fridge. Cornish game hen. I let it get to room temp. I'd say it was on the counter for 2+ hours. Am I gonna get sick if I BBQ it? Please don't say I have to toss it. I wonder how many emergency room visits there are for people who left their chicken out on the counter too long. Not many,I'm guessing.

More info needed Caslon. It was on the counter at room temp for 2 hrs or so and you put it in the fridge? I'd cook it myself.

A fridge thawed cornish game hen. It was very chilled when I took it out and seasoned it. I let it get to room temp, and then some. i stuck it back in the freezer real quick, and then down to the fridge. Please tell me I can BBQ it safely. I don't want to toss it.

Are statistics in my favor?

I don't defrost and freeze again but that is maybe just me. For the most part I smell my meats and toss if they have any off odour or colour. You will have to decide. Was it warm or still cold when you put it back into the fridge?

It was room temp, or there abouts. I wouldn't be asking if it was still cold.

I would just cook it asap. Can't tell you there is no risk. Your call.
