Juice left out all night still good?

I just left my favorite juice out all night! Is it still good or should I throw it away? The kitchen was rather cool.

  • Everything you buy at the store is pasturized (as far as beverages). Because of this, with or without preservatives, it should be fine.
    If you left out a fresh squeezed juice I might say differently :)

  • it's probably just fine. What kind of juice was it?

    Seeing as it's just juice, if it did spoil and you can't really tell, the worst that could happen is you get a colon cleanse (if you catch what I mean)

  • I would drink it myself, I just wouldn't serve it to an infant or toddler.

  • I know some people who never put their juices in the refrigerator. I think it is gross, but they survive. I've left mine out overnight by accident and used it, and it was fine.

  • personally i would throw it away - if i didnt have the money to just replace it i would do the sniff test. then try a little and see if it tastes bad, but i buy 100% juice ... like simply apple... other brands that have preservatives would make it overnight.

  • It should be good but better toss it. Dont put your self in danger.

  • In glass or can or pitcher, could make it spoil faster.

  • THROW IT OUT!!!!!!!!! Just because people have been lucky to not get sick, doesn't mean it can't happen. I have had food poisoning and I will do anything to avoid that again. Better safe than sorry.
