Taking Work turkey home safely. Is it ok?????
Caterers set it up hot in one of those large electric roasters at noon. it was set to 300 degrees and the meat was sliced and sat in gravy.. I worked 6pm to midnight. 11pm I noticed one tray was empty, but one was full. wrapped it up in foil and put it in the fridge. I quickly brought it home and chilled tI overnight. it was sitting in hot gravy when I wrapped it..
Generally, putting hot food covered in a refrigerator is not a good idea. It hampers cooling and the food can turn sour.
So the entire pan was hot/ significantly above room temp when put in the fridge?
It would be a bit risky to eat it since it would have had a great opportunity to grow bacteria you won't necessarily taste. Risky.
If you do decide to eat it i would recommend a soup and get it to a boil to kill anything.
