<p>Can't believe I did this-I made a batch of Turkey Chili in the crock pot.  I fully cook my ground turkey before adding it to the crock pot & then it sat in the crock pot with all the veggies, beans & diced tomatoes for about 6 hours, maybe 7.  We ate some for dinner & then I put the rest into my pyrex bowl & put the lid on but it was so hot so I decided to let it sit on the counter before putting it in the fridge.  I then proceeded to go to bed & forget it & find it out on the counter at 8am.  Our house is pretty cold & our kitchen/sunroom area is probably less than 60 degrees at night.</p>

<p>Is it safe?  Obviously it will be reheated before eating.  If servings were brought to a boil on the stove before serving would that make it safe?  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Damn-this was a really good batch of chili & the baby has finally started to eat some solids & actually loved it. Gggrrrrr.</p>

<p>i would let it boil or pressure cook it, then I would eat it. I wouldn't feed it to a kid, though.</p>

<p>I would eat it. I would feed it to my kids. I wouldn't worry about it at all, actually. I leave stuff out in covered containers often if I don't have room in the fridge and know we're going to eat it the next day. </p>

<p>I wouldn't eat it.  Also, if you have something very hot and that holds heat, it is safest to cool it in a shallow container, not a big/deep container.</p>

<p>So, DH heated some up in the microwave on his own & I had reheated some in a pot & waited till it was bubbling.  No stomach problems & it tasted great!!!!  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thx for all the feedback.  </p>

<p>Glad it went well. In our house, we would eat it, too, after heating it, of course.</p>

<p>I would not. I teach food safety and I'm admittedly neurotic about food safety. My family teases me. But in my house, absolutely not. I follow a two hour more or less rule, sometimes up to four, but really, off the heat, it's two hours then pitched!</p>

<p>Given that your house is cold, I would eat it (after reheating it much more aggressively than if I was just heating something 'cause I want it to taste hot). If it were the middle of summer that would be another thing. I would not give it to a baby though. In fact I would hesitate to give any ground meat to a little one, unless I had ground it myself.</p>
