Ask Dr. Potato: Are mashed potatoes that are left out safe for consumption?

If they are just mashed potatoes, they are probably ok to leave out. However, the issue is usually the ingredients mixed in with the potatoes. Dairy items such as milk and butter will spoil if left out. However olive oil or margarine as ingredients don’t need to be refrigerated.

Here are the general guidelines:

Once cooked and left out at room temperature, holding hot food needs to be 135°F or above, and holding cold food should be at 41°F or below.
