caserol left out for 24 hours, has turkey in it, is it ok?

So my wife made green enchilladas before she went out of town and I forgot to put them in the fridge. I stuck them in the fridge as soon as I realized but it had been about 24 hours. I am pretty sad about the whole thing because I freakin love these enchilladas and she isnt going to be back for few days. Anyway, am I going to be ok to eat them or do they have to go in the trash?? Thanks anyone who can help.

  1. Not OK. Trash, definitely.

    1. Sorry, but no, it is not okay. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the general rule of thumb is no more than 2 hours at room temperature. It is not worth getting food poisoning.

      1. If in doubt, throw it out. Sorry, but it isn't worth the tummy troubles.

          1. I'm with the others, Sethco. 24 hours is just way too long. Toss it.
