fish  food  safety


Question by  freezing (16)

Is it okay to eat fish that were left out overnight?

I accidentally left my fish out overnight last night and would like to know if I can still eat it.

No you can not. Any fish or meat left unrefrigerated or not kept at a certain temperature will spoil. The longer it's kept out the more bacteria builds up in the fish. If you eat spoiled fish you will get extremely ill with food poisoning. You can eat leftover regrigerated fish for up to 3 days.

If the fish is freshly caught, it is okay to use it within 12 hours. If the fish has been defrosted and then kept out, you cannot consume it.
