Is it OK to eat leftovers that sat out overnight?


Answer by  joantheresa (1421)

Some leftovers that have been left out overnight can be eaten, but definitely not meat dishes, eggs, and salads with mayonnaise.

It depends on what type of food you left out overnight. Generally you should not eat meat or other refrigerated items (such as mayonnaise) if you left it out overnight. Items like produce and starches are generally okay.
