I left a jar of Real mayonise out for 3 hours, is it still good

It was Hellman's brand ( or Best foods), I stuck it back in the fridge and will throw it out if too many of you tell me to.
or keep it if too many of you tell me it is okay

  • I really don't think it would be bad. I know we have done the same thing during cook outs and things when all our condiments were out for a couple hours and then we put them back in the fridge. We have never gotten sick from it. If it were over night or something it would be different but I think it would be fine.

  • My thinking is that if you don't mind getting sick, go ahead and chance it; if not, toss it......When in doubt, throw it out.

  • I also think it's probably fine unless it is really hot inside your house.

  • Throw it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are never to eat something that is left out for more than 2 hours. Why risk food poisioning for a $2 jar of mayo?

  • TyFry - I don't know where you live but where I live you can't get mayo for $2 more like $4.49

    To OP - I don't think you'll get sick from it. I think you'll be ok.

  • I wouldn't throw it out, I would have put in back in the fridge and use it again.
