Question: Eating Stew Left in Crockpot Over Night

By SUKY 1 2

The stew in my slow-cooker was just finishing cooking when I went to bed at 10:00 pm. It was way too hot to put in the refrigerator. I left it covered on the counter and refrigerated it at 7:30 in the morning. Is it still OK to eat?

The FDA says food should not be eaten if left out after two hours. I don't adhere to this strictly but all night, I wouldn't chance it.

Question: Using Cooked Celery Left on Stove Overnight

Last night I cleaned some stalks of celery for soup this weekend and cooked it with the top greens. I left it in the water in a stainless steel pan overnight on top of the stove. Can I still use it? I put it in the fridge when I got up this morning.
