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