How long do cooked potatoes stay good?

Allie D'Augustine | May 12, 2003 04:50 PM

So, last week, I baked some potatoes in order to make hash browns... and now I have one thoroughly cooked, leftover potato wrapped in foil in my fridge. It's 5 days old and it *seems* fine... Do cooked potatoes acquire some kind of deadly bacteria after a while?

I suspect that this is something that everyone except me knows, but I can't find an answer.
