Well what temp did they come to? Above 40 degrees I'd toss them. Especially if the time they were above 40* is measured in days.

Were they always packed within the ice? If so, they should have been below 40 deg. and be good. Otherwise, it's a gamble.

I don't think they ever got above 40 degrees. I can try the smell test as well as the texture of meat. Hate to waste. But not worth getting sick.

Sorry, no I kept it fully iced, cooler only opened once a day to check ice level. Checking when I get home from work.

I know say that you had it fully iced, but personally if you have to second guess the status of the meat, it just not worth taking a chance.


It's cheaper to buy 4 more racks of ribs than to pay for a doctor's visit.

If it passes the sniff test, I'd eat it. I might be hesitant to serve it to anyone though.
I don't mind making myself sick, I'd hate to be the reason someone else got sick.

I have decided not to cook the ribs, the risk (wife talked me out of it) outweighed the reward (it was close...I make pretty good ribs). thank you all for your input.

I get it if they smell bad toss em, but if they don't, what exactly is going to make him sick? Ribs are cooked past 160° and well into the safe zone. Serious question, sorry if newbie.

ETA: Nevermind, google reveals that toxins remain behind in spoiled meat that are heat stable, so heating will not make it safe.
