I came to ATS with this because.. well.. you guys can find the answer for everything.

Yesterday we bought Burger King. I have a Jr Whopper that was never unwraped. It didn't get put in the fridge but sat wrapped up on the counter for about 15 hours. The AC has been on all night and the kitchen is relatively cool.

Is it safe to eat?

Edit: I feel guilty making such a silly non conspiracy related thread but I honestly couldn't think of a better resource. If a Mod deletes this, I'll certainly understand.

It's probably as "safe" to eat in 15 years as it is when it is first "cooked"

Though I am not a doctor so.. for the sake of your own health just throw it out

This is also not the forum to be posting this foolishness

Don't eat it if there is mayonnaise on it. Mayo goes bad fast.
Besides that eat away. I've eaten much worse and I'm still here.

I think if you microwave it then it should be safe. Maybe put some water on it before you do and then you can nuke it for like a full minute without it getting burnt.

I'm very aware of that but the science types hang out here. If a mod wants to delete it, I have no problems with that.

No it is not safe to eat.

Bacteria thrives in food at room temperature, you eat that as is and you could get food poisoning.

And it's not just take away food, any food is susceptible to this.

This is basic stuff. Keep raw and cooked meats separate, store food at appropriate temperature (this one's for you), cook or re-heat food to proper temperatures.

Well, I would not eat it, but suit yourself.

I have watched people eat raw meat, left over meat, old meat, new meat, and just jack nasty a$$ meat and they survived but I can't promise you will not get an upset stomach or a bacteria infested stomach.

I do it all the time.. Actually I just did it with a quarter pounder.. They are so fake I don't think bacteria grow very fast on them. A general health rule for cooked meat is that it is good for 4 hours MAX on the table.

Im no dotor and this is NOT health advice

Bit of bacteria doesn't do the majority of us any harm what so ever. The things that go on in food establishments, never mind our own kitchens when we have had one to many speaks volumes.

Get it ate I say

If youve ever had food poisoning ,the you wouldnt even think about it.

Food poisoning is a common, usually mild, but sometimes deadly illness. Typical symptoms include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, and diarrhea that occur suddenly (within 48 hours) after consuming a contaminated food or drink. Depending on the contaminant, fever and chills, bloody stools, dehydration, and nervous system damage may follow. These symptoms may affect one person or a group of people who ate the same thing (called an outbreak). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that in the United States, 1 in 6 people becomes sick from eating contaminated food. In 2001, the CDC estimated that food poisoning causes about 48 million illnesses, 128,000 hospitalizations, and up to 3,000 deaths each year. Norovirus and salmonella are the most common infectious forms of food-borne illness. Salmonella causes the most deaths followed by Toxoplasma and Listeria.
