Hi. Bought some very fresh Spanish breakfast sausage today - left them in the car and then in my unheated living room - didn't get them in the fridge for 3 hours. Not hot out today - maybe 10 C or 50 F.

Can I still eat them or should I toss them? They were still a little cool to the touch in the bag. I'm leaning towards eating them, but just want some other possibly more knowledgeable opinions.

    I would not hesitate for an instant but am sure the hand-wringing worry-worts will do their best to convince you it would be suicide.

      They're fine. Even if it was fresh meat it'd be fine, but with all the seasoning in sausage it'll be extra fine.
