Hi. I ordered one of those morrisons food boxes as struggling to get to the supermarket during all this crisis. Now they never mentioned what time it would be coming and ive only just seen a text. It means the box has been sat at my front door for 2 hours. I ordered the one with meat in like sausages, raw steak, chicken legs, now im concerned that the entire contents will be useless as it may have spoiled while sitting at my front door for 2 hours.

Does anyone know how long is relatively safe to keep the food there for as 2 hours seems a lot? The meat came in a standadd cardboard box but inside had 4 or 5 ice packs also.

@Confused831 I would say as long as it's properly cooked it should be okay. If there were icepacks in the box (and it's not a very warm day today) you should be okay. The issue is proper cooking (which kills any bugs!)

You usually bring meat out to bring to room temperature before cooking anyway.

It will be fine

That will be fine! The food will have been cold when it went in, well insulated by other food and the cool packs. No problem.

I've been longer in the car than that, after a shopping trip.
