You haven’t finished your meal after dining out, so you ask for a leftover container, you put it in the car, run some errands and then into the refrigerator hours later. It may seem like a good idea to eat those leftovers but without some guidelines there is the risk of getting sick yourself and giving others food borne illness.
Have you been to a restaurant and taken leftovers home? Did you leave them in the car for a few hours while running errands? How long did you leave them in the refrigerator before eating that delectable leftover?
