Double cheeseburger left out overnight in ~65F room temperature. If I microwave it for lunch, will I be suffering illness thereafter?

I'll definitely watch that after my lunch is done.

I have eaten week+ old refrigerated lasagna with no issues, but undoubtedly risky.

seriously, don't eat it. The risk are too great. Buy another burger or order some pizza.

Eat it. That's good food gone to waste.

Decide my fate boys:

4 day old protein shake left out. Half gone. Had banana, peanut butter, protein powder and milk.

Bottoms up? :D

You guys are on fire today. Laughed at multiple replies.

I say do it for science. The strength of your immune system will be revealed.

Eat it. You won't even need the vaccine to be Covid proof.

But seriously. It'll be fine. Just overnight, processed burger, all good.

I agree with DAPUNISHER. This thread delivered!
I would eat the burger. I've eaten many burgers that were left out by my wife. Some of them even had mayonnaise.:p

I would totally eat that burger, and then wash it down with a shot of RumChata. Unemployedwineguy says that it's a must try:

The USDA says if you leave a cooked burger out for two hours, you should throw it away. But I think they're lying so go ahead and eat it.

I would be dead 50x over if this was accurate.... more like a worst-case.

Every time I've gotten sick from food its either been from something stored in the fridge for too long or cross-contamination.
