How long can it sit outside the fridge in closed jar before it goes bad?
I know this varies by item- I;m sure anything with eggs or milk will go bad quicker.
I pulled out a recently opened jar of Hot Pace Picante Sauce from the fridge at lunch (12:30) and then realized when I came home at 4:30 that it was still sitting on the counter (top closed). I started to throw it away, then I put it back in the fridge.
So is it bad?
Are there certain standards for different things- regarding how long they can be out of the fridge and still be ok?
