Milk left on counter for several hours...keep or pour out?

We are always in a hurry on Sunday mornings. Church, lunch, baseball practice. It is skim milk and was probably left out from 9am-7pm. Would you still keep it...almost a full gallon.

  • No dump it that was a long time to have it left out. Now if it had only been a couple of hours I'd say smell it then keep it if it seems right but no not for that long of a period.

  • Definitely throw it out. If it were for only like an our or 2, and it was still cool to the touch, I'd probably save it, but that's almost 12 hours!

  • For every hour you leave out, it takes a day off the expiration.

  • If it was out for an hour or two, I might keep it... but that's all day. I'd definitely toss it.

  • That's 10 hours - definitely don't keep it. I'll keep it if it's been out 2 hours, DH will keep it after 4, but that's it.
