Food Safety - Leftover Bones

schoenfelderp | Apr 17, 2012 03:12 PM

If serving a bone-in piece of meat, say bone-in shortribs, is it safe to finish roasting off those bones after the ribs have been eaten and then use them for stock from a food safety point of view? I would assume that in roasting the bones the temperature comes high enough to kill anything, and for my own family I would do this. Is this an acceptable practice when it comes to other people or a restaurant setting though?
