Bacon left out . . . WWYD??

We ran to Walgreens last night right before bedtime. I bought 2 packs of bacon since I needed it and they had a RR rewards deal on it.

When we got home I rushed the kids to bath and bed and somehow missed that the bacon got brought in the house but not put in the fridge.

DH noticed the bag as he was getting ready for work this morning and stuck the bacon in the fridge.

But it sat out all night (apx 12 hours) The heat was set at 64 in our house. Would you keep it or toss it??

It's killing me to waste that money, but I don't want anyone to get sick. It's Oscar Mayer Bacon.

no, no, no, no, please do not risk your health by doing that. I took a couple of food safety courses when I was a cook in a daycare center. Leaving raw meat out overnight is not safe in any way, shape, or form. Even if it smells good, even if it looks fine, even if you cook the heck out of it, there may be bacteria and you can't know for sure if there is or not. I wouldn't risk it.

I would throw it out- if anyone got sick, I would just regret it too much.
