Health Hints

Food such as meat, mayonnaise, eggs and cheese follow the “Golden Hour” rule, meaning they can stay at room temperature for up to two hours before they are considered unsafe. However, the rules change in severe heat and humidity. These foods can only stay in an environment above 90 degrees for an hour before they need to be thrown out.
