How long does corn on the cob last?

I cooked corn on the cob last night and wonder if it is safe to eat.

If you had it in the fridige after you cook it it should be safe to eat for at least a week. If you left the corn out all night I would eat it within a day.

It is good if you stored it in the refrigerator while it was still hot. Bacteria can form on food if it slowly cools and give you a tummy ache.

Yes, it is safe depending upon a couple of factors. Cooked vegetables should either be kept hot or refrigerated. So it is safe as long as you refrigerated it. To answer your main question, refrigerated cooked veggies should be consumed within 4-5 days of preparation.
