So...random question...we went to Sam's and did the grocery shopping on Saturday afternoon..Well we unloaded and I thought we had everything put away then spent all Sat and Sunday at my in laws..Got back this morning and realized we left a package of chicken breasts in our sink...ugh! My husband says it was cold enough that they should be fine...but I'm just not sure it's safe. I should mention I have an irrational fear of chicken anyway...but what do you guys think?

Unless your house was below 42 degrees it's not safe to eat. Toss it.

Nope- protein should be in the fridge/freezer within 2 hours.

Not worth food poisoning-throw it out! :)

This is what I was thinking.

Quoting olliesmommy2: Unless your house was below 42 degrees it's not safe to eat. Toss it.

Throw it out. The temperature danger zone is between 41-141 degrees...in other words if the meat is in that range it has begun to grow harmful bacteria and should never be consumed.

Um... There's a reason human lifespan has increased since the invention of refrigeration.

Ew, no. Great way to give your family e. coli.

No the chicken is not safe.  You could get Salmonella poisoning.  I'd throw it away.
