Had THE best takeaway Mon night grin

Just found a box full of singapore vermicelli at the back of my fridge which was left overs.

Yey or Nay?!

No no no. I have the very recent memory of shocking food poisoning at the weekend. It's not worth it, trust me

Unreasonable, no. Unwise, yes.

You see I would for sure - even better 2nd time round as long as it is not rice i think it is fine.... enjoy!

No. Chinese food v bad for food poisoning when reheated. Next day I'd say yes if v well reheated. 3 days later, noooooooo. Just buy more tonight. grin

Yay. I so would, and have. How will you get a strong stomach if you don't train it? grin

You have left over chinese thats lasted 3 days?? On the rare occasion we have left overs i usually eat it for breakfast the next day grin not sure id risk it after 3 days though, i suppose if it smells ok then it should be fine!

I did have it for breakfast the next day! A whole plateful!

But this little bad boy hid at the back. Grrr.

Woolly - the op may end up seeing the chinese not only a 2nd time round, but a 3rd and 4th time as well.

Don't take a chance OP. Put it in the bin.

Gah, don't chance it! Rice and noodles are shocking for the number of germs they hoard as leftovers (something to do with the total surface area being very high - more room for bugs to breed on).

Shame though, esp if the takeaway was yummy...

I think if it's reheated to over 72 degrees you should be ok. Depends if it's been reheated before though!

As long as you put it straight into fridge when cool, and reheat it thoroughly, it's should be perfectly safe. It's only been in there 3 days!
