I forgot to put cheese in the fridge overnight. Safe to eat or throw out?
 
I bought sliced cheese (Havarti semisoft, in case that helps) last night and completely forgot about it until just now (about 15 hours later). It looks OK but I don't know if it's safe to eat??

Shouldn't be a problem.

I agree with Andy

But if it's Sargento make sure it's not part of the listeria recall

Certain products never see refrigeration until they hit the groshree store. Among these items are butter, eggs, and cheese.

No problem. If there was one you would know (other than a recall as Jennyema mentions).

'Most' cheese can go mouldy eventually, especially where handled. But you will see that right away, it gets a 'bloom' in white/yellow or grey.

Overnight on the counter is not anything to worry about. Again, especially if still in its original packaging unopened. Unopened could possible last for days out and weeks perhaps even months in the fridge.

You'll be fine. I'd eat it. As long as it isn't Sargento on the recall list, as jennyema stated.

Not really true. The warehouses are refrigerated and these products are delivered on refrigerated trucks. In the summer they would be delivering melted butter...

Grocery stores have a vested interest in keeping food fresh as long as possible, that's why perishables are climate controlled at every stage.

Eat it....

I'll add to the "eat it" chorus. Cheese left out at room temp should be fine. Left in your car for 15 hours in the sun... I'd ditch that.
