So most days at work I bring in a Lean Cuisine - I typically bring it in and put it in my mini-fridge under my desk.  The other day, I forgot to take it out of my bag, then ate out for lunch.  When I went to pack up to go home, I found the Lean Cuisine that had been in my bag all day, unrefrigerated.  Being cheap, and feeling wasteful, I put it in my fridge and have been pondering if I should eat it for the last week.  

It's Asian-Style Potstickers with rice.  Some meat in the potstickers.  

-It sat out for 8 full hours at room temperature

-It's got meat in it

+It's likely already bathed in preservatives

+It's sealed up in the little container

Not worth the risk, IMO.

Did it start the eight hours frozen? If so I say go for it.

Yes.  Was frozen when I put it in my bag.

though it is thawing from frozen, 4+ hours at room temp is a hazard (40 - 140 has major potential for bacterial growth).

I wouldnt eat it but I am a wuss about this stuff. 

If I try to look at it objectively I cant really see what you could catch if you nuke the heck out of it in the Microwave.

If we don't hear anything within an hour, I'm assuming he's violently vomiting in the bathroom.

From someone who has done her share of vomiting I don't wish that on anyone and that is why I would have easily tossed that Lean Cuisine in the trash.

Ea it, you'll be fine.

 

Also, expiration dates are merely a suggestion on most items. It's so they can make more $ off you. Obviously, bread, milk, eggs, cheese expire. Things like that bottle of salad dressing will likely be good for a year or more after the date stamped on it.

 

You're welcome.

You’re just out of HS and female?  Does @Homer J Simpson know you post here?

Given the short amount of time that you have too cook the stuff from frozen, it's likely that the pork was cooked, not raw. But I agree with AAABatteries on not eating Lean Cuisine.

Better to read the results than smell them.

...Still doing fine.  Chasing it down with some Cheetos now.  They're the baked kind, so it's OK.

Those that voted no... wtf is wrong with you?  He didn't ask if YOU would eat it.  He asked if HE should eat it.  I'm going on record that anyone that voted no is a dumbshoe.

FAT NICK!!

 

eat it, no doubt.  any pranks lately?

Nothing too noteworthy. We have this new fictitious points system at work within our team where you can “earn” points by doing work things. You can also award points to others. It’s a totally self-run system for our team with no real value.  Totally for fun.  Since you can award your points to others, I’ve started holding stuff for ransom in exchange for points. The guy with the post points had 25 points. I took his mouse USB receiver and left a note demanding 15 points for it’s safe return.  He tried to hold out but caved and gave me the points. I hid another guy’s car keys for another 10 points. At this point I’m firmly in the lead with the most points strictly by holding things for ransom. No clue why nobody does it to me. I think they’re all terrified I’ll retaliate with a real prank.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Being sarcastic in my comments hence the smiley faces. I have had to endure horrible sickness and it isn't fun.  I didn't have any choice in the matter though.

He might be Skinny Nick after pooping his brains out all night.
