Is my pea soup going to kill me?

  • 9

I accidentally left my pea soup out all night...will I bite the big one if I partake?

Standard pea soup with smoked sausage.

  1. How warm is your house?

    I'm a pretty much live on the edge type of gal. I'd eat it if it tasted okay. I think it will be fine.

    1. Responding again (sorry) I remember my Mom used to make pinto beans or navy bean soup and would leave it on the stove for hours and hours on end for days at a time and we never died <g>.

      1. heat it up really good first maybe

        1. I can't believe it! I did the exact same thing Sunday night. I made my pea soup with a ham bone, which I had removed, but all the meat was sitting in the bottom. I'd been looking forward to making it for weeks, so we ate it Monday night and again last night and no ill effects. I hate to say, I've done this kind of thing before and it's never killed us, or even made us the least sick.

          1. It might not kill you but it could make you very sick.

            You might be fine, but you might not be: I don't know if you've ever had food poisoning, but I did once, and spent 14 hours in the emergency room with an IV because of it.

            I'm sure you put alot of effort and spent hard-earned money on the ingredients, but it's just not worth it.

            Throw it out.
