PLEASE HELP! How long can cooked meat stay out for, and still be eaten?

violetglitter | Jun 10, 2010 07:58 AM

So I made a small pot roast last night (late - around 10 or 11pm), and took it out of the oven to cool on the counter, and naturally, fell asleep. I put it in the fridge this morning around 8am. Is it safe to eat, having been out at room temp for about 9-10 hours?

Surely, I can be the first person to experience something like this...

Thanks!
