Food Safety: Big pot of chicken soup left out for 24 hours

Peter | Feb 1, 201002:03 PM

All, I'm looking for some guidance here.

1. Throw together a huge pot of chicken soup Sunday afternoon. Carcass and all.

2. Let simmer for hours.

3. Turn off when one goes out for a 90 minute dinner.

4. Get home and forget to put it away.

5. Discover soup tonight, still on stovetop, about 23 HOURS after the heat was turned off.

So... if I bring this up to a rapid boil again, is it safe to eat? Or is this gonna make us all sick?

Thanks in advance for your guidance!
