Hi guys,

Just found this forum and this is kind of an emergency post. I just possibly ate some Wei-Chuan frozen pot stickers that may not have been thoroughly cooked. So I fried them for like 4 ish minutes and then sat down to eat them. I was in a hurry and the fact that the labeled said "pre-steamed" made me brave enough rush in the cooking process. When I bit into the first one it was still cold but no longer frozen. So I microwave them for 1 minute and they were steaming hot. Ate about 6 until I realized that was pretty stupid because they could still be raw.

So can anybody give me some input here? One side of me is telling me it is safe. The chicken and vegetable meat inside had a pale whitish/greyish/yellow texture, definitely not pink. Also the innards were stuck together and not all flakey like a raw dumping. Also the package says "pre-steamed". The other side of me worries because I didn't follow the cooking instructions and they were still cold and now Im really stressing out and can't get go about my day what do you guys think? I am afraid of salmonella or something like that.

Called the company... only thing they said was they are pre-steamed but no guarantees of food safety unless they were cooked properly to 165 degrees. dang. So essentially i only cooked it for 1 minute in the microwave because the 4 minutes in the pan was basically only defrosting it...

Anyway here is a picture of the pot sticker:
