Ok, when I make yogurt, I leave it in a warm area for 24ish hours.  

 

So, the other day I bought two containers of full fat, plain organic yogurt.  

 

Somehow the bag got left in the car.  We found one of them the following morning.  I thought the other one was already in the refrigerator.  Nope, I found the 2nd one that afternoon.  So, one was in the car from 4 to about 10am the following morning and the other one was found around 3 that afternoon.  

 

I stuck them both in the refrigerator and just opened them and they smell perfectly fine.  I tasted it and it tastes fine.  But, I understand that not all bacteria smell. 

 

So, would you eat it?  I keep going back to the fact that when making your own yogurt, it sits in a warm place for 24 hours.  But, it was warm in the car.  Probably in the 80s that day.

I've got a stomach of steel and might be tempted to try the one found in the morning if it smelled and looked okay...maybe.  It depends on how adventurous I was feeling.  I definitely wouldn't feed it to my kids though. I'd toss the one found in the afternoon. That's just too much time at too high a temperature for me.

Well, I ate out of one of them and was fine but, my kids are the ones who eat the most yogurt so, I tossed it.  Darn!

No, I wouldn't eat it. Yogurt is cheap, being sick is not.
