What's that they say? "When in doubt, throw it out."

Are a few potatoes worth risking severe illness? Not for me.

Well, they had been left out overnight yesterday. I wouldn't use them if they are still out. The OP hasn't posted since that first, lone post.

Potatoes really aren't a "potentially hazardous food". If it were me, I'd re-heat them to 160f+ and use them again. But...I have a bachelor's stomach...similar to that of a vulture's. If you are sensitive, then throw them out....I just hate to waste food.

Actually, they are. People have a misconception that the danger of bad potato salad is from the mayonnaise, but it's actually from the potato (unless raw eggs were used in the mayo).

Cooked in skin, left out of water, in a cool kitchen. Talked to a Red seal chef that said they would be fine.... Thanks for all your reply's.
