Can I eat cheese which has been “infected” with blue cheese mold?
A while ago I got a chunk of blue cheese and stored it in the fridge. A little later, we bought some cheddar cheese and I stored it in teh same compartment of the fridge as the blue cheese. Now the cheddar cheese has mold on it. I've never seen mold on cheddar cheese appear this quickly, so I'm wondering if having the blue cheese in my fridge actually makes mold appear on my other cheeses more quickly?
in the fridge. Two days later, the Pyrenean cheese had some mold with bluish tinge on the surface. I assume the seller has stored the cheese properly, so it shouldn't have gone moldy by itself in the short time in my fridge. I think that the benign mold from the blue cheese colonized the Pyrenean cheese. Still, I decided not to risk eating it (I still ate the blue cheese). Is this what really happened? If it happens again, can I assume that it is edible mold? Is it safe to eat edible mold after it has colonized another type of cheese, or will the changed food prompt it to produce dangerous
Possible Duplicate: Why is it dangerous to eat meat which has been left out and then cooked? On Friday I am picking up some food items that I won't be able to get to a fridge and/or freezer for at least a couple of hours. I am not worried about the fruit or vegetables but I am also picking up some meat (specifically ground beef, round steak and pork tenderloin). The meat will be completely frozen upon pickup. My question is will the meat still be good if I get home a couple hours later? In addition could I put the meat in the freezer or must I put it in the fridge and it eat
Possible Duplicate: Is it safe to cook a steak that was left out (raw) for 7 hours? My husband pulled a moose roast out of the freezer, marinated it in the fridge for 2 days and then put it in the slow cooker this morning. I just got home and noticed that he never plugged in the slow cooker, so this defrosted roast has been sitting on our counter for 7 hours. I plugged the slow cooker in and turned it on high. There's no dairy products in the marinade. Are we going to get sick if we eat this roast?
I have a sandwich that says "sell by 11/4". The sandwich is white bread, provolone cheese, turkey breast, and some lettuce wrapped in a plastic bag. I went to go eat the sandwich today and found that what appears to be the cheese has melted into a liquid goop. Within the sandwich the cheese was sitting on top of the turkey. The provolone cheese says: pasteurized milk cheese culture, salt, enzymes. I didn't know cheese could melt in the fridge? No power was lost to the chilly bin since the turkey butty was put it in there. Update: So I pulled out my backup sandwich which is a little more

Is it still safe to eat?

I got 4 dozen eggs this weekend (from actual chickens on a farm that were laid yesterday), and they sat in my car overnight. Would they still be good to eat? I put them in the fridge this morning. I'd say they sat for 20 hours in my car.

I started it around 8:30 p.m. and cooked it for an hour and a half at 350 then turned it down to 250 to cook all night. Sometime in the night my roaster oven bit the dust and when I awoke at 7:00 a.m...., but will it be safe to eat? I just don't know how long it had been off. This was over $30.00 of meat and I hate to waste it. I can cook it all day today, would you risk eating it?
