I should know this, but for some reason I don't. The braised beef was out of the fridge for 12 hours in our 70 degree house. I have seen food out at picnics for a long time, then wrapped and eaten later, but I'm wondering if the 12 hours is too long and if I need to throw it away. It's about 2 lbs of excellent short ribs and I'm so sad to toss them.

Then again, 200 years ago they didn't have fridges or coolers, what happened to the meat in that case?

Help!
