  • Yes, I don't see why not. I guess it is age, but it never made me sick, and yes, I have done it before. :)

  • No, I wouldn't eat them I've worked in Dairy and dairy products expire roughly two hours after being in temps higher than 40 degrees.
    Toss them and laugh I've put milk in the pantry and found it a day later -palmface- my husband still brings that up every now and then lol

  • I would also throw them out OR use them cooked into something (right away).

    Here's why - if there were any bacteria in the cheese (there should be some, a little bit), then in the fridge they grow very slowly but at room temp they grow faster, so you would have alot more bacteria in there after a day at room temp. If you are going to use them, so it ASAP before they make more and more bacteria. If you heat them (like cooking into a baked ziti or something), the heating will kill the bacteria so they won't make anymore..... but theeir bodies may make some people sick, even once cooked.
