Would you eat this?

So, this morning I put a pork loin in the crockpot and set it to start. Walked out and left for work, but didn't actually turn the crockpot on. So, the pork loin and potatos sat until I got home at 12:45 (about 5 hours). I then cursed, turned it on high, and cooked it up. I'm planning on eating it, but I may have to update tomorrow when we are all violently ill

So, would you eat it?

Poll coming up!

So you are saying it sat in the crock pot at room temp/not cooking for 5 hours? Absolutely no I would not eat it....I wouldn't even consider that a possibility after 5 hours.

Cooking it will not necessarily kill off bacteria (basically the bacterial count could be so high no amount of cooking will make it safe for consumption).

Fruits and vegetables may become contaminated when they are growing or when they are processed. But it can also happen in your kitchen if you leave food out for more than 2 hours at room temperature

If food is left out too long, some bacteria, such as staphylococcus aureus (staph), can form a heat-resistant toxin that cooking can't destroy.

TWO HOURS is the MAXIMUM time perishable foods should be at room temperature (ONE HOUR at temperatures 90 degrees F and higher). This INCLUDES the time they're on the table during your meal. Just ONE bacterium, doubling every 20 minutes, can grow to over 2,097,152 bacteria in 7 hours!

I would possibly consider eating it, but DH would make me toss it out. I selected other in the poll.

No, I wouldn't eat it. Sure cooking it may kill any bacteria that has grown on it, but since I couldn't be 100% sure about that I wouldn't chance it.

Having said that, I'm sure in my lifetime I have eaten something like that, however its all psychological and I wouldn't knowingly do it. Ignorance can be bliss

Not only will I say yes, I would but yes, I have!

I have done it with quite a few things, beef stew, soups, chicken salsa, etc.

And mine sits for closer to 9 hours before I discover it!

Guts of iron, apparently!

Was the pork loin sitting in liquid? If so, then absolutely not as it would cool off very quickly.

If it wasn't in liquid, then how cold was the pork loin when you put it in the crockpot and how big is it? If it was quite large and very cold (i.e., partially thawed or from a very cold fridge), and then put inside the fairly insulated crock pot, it would likely be okay (although I'm still not sure if I'd risk it).

No. You should not eat any food that has sat at room temperature for more than 4 hours. It is not safe.

It was cold, and not placed in liquid. I'm going to eat it, but I'm not sure if I'll feed it to the children

Please don't feed it to your kids. Is whatever the cost of the pork loin was more than the hospital or Dr visits that could result from this? 5 hours is a ridiculous amount of time for a meat product..pork no less to be sitting out at room temperature and not safe to consume. Chalk it up as a loss and eat something in the house for dinner tonight (other than the pork loin).

Remember it only takes that 1 time for you or your family to become seriously ill from food borne bacteria.

Quote:
Pork should be stored so that it is kept out of the temperature zone in which bacteria, that causes foodborne illness, grows quickly. The danger temperature zone is a range between 40°F and 140°F. Raw pork can be stored in a refrigerator several days, depending on the type of cut. If it is not to be used within the recommended time, it should be frozen to prevent it from perishing. Leftover cooked pork should be wrapped tightly and refrigerated as soon as possible. Do not leave any pork at room temperature for more than two hours.
Quote:
Raw pork should not be left in room temperature conditions for more than two hours, according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service. If it exceeds this time frame, throw it out as cooking will not necessarily kill all the bacteria.

I would not, but my inlaws (who have been together 52 years) have been eating this way for, well, 52 years. I honestly don't think either has had a stomach ailment in the 30 plus years I've known there. It's a little scary. I truly, honestly, don't eat at their house...
