No. Bacteria are always forming around us, and proliferate faster in warmer temps. Don't want to ruin your appetite, but remember what meat is, and keep it refrigerated.

I would have to say no. Not safe.

Husband does it with his KFC all the time. I can't convince him it isn't all right because he never gets sick.

Yes maam!
Oct. 13, 2012 4:49 pm is NOT safe to do that. When someone says "I do that all the time and haven't gotten sick".....that isn't sound advice and eventually they will get ill from doing that.
