Default Goofed up Thawing Ribs

I set two racks of ribs out on the kitchen counter last night at 8pm and forgot them until about 5:30 this morning. They were completely thawed. Should I cook or trash them?

Are they still cool? It should have taken several hours for them to completly thaw anyway. Id cook them if they were cool as well.

The bacteria will ket killed during cooking, but not necessarily all of the toxins produced by the bacteria. I'd cook them right away.

They'll probably be fine. I've done it before. Anything alive will be dead when it's cooked, but they may be a bit sour. This is exactly why spices were in such high demand before refrigeration. It was to cover the "sour" flavor of old meat.

I wouldn't dump 'em. I'd cook 'em.
I don't spend a lot of time worrying about stuff like that.....but then I've never been sick from it either.

Were the cryovac'd or just wrapped in butcher paper? I'd think you'd smell if something was amiss.?

If you are cooking them (which I assume that you ALWAYS cooking pork) to a relatively high internal temp, then the bacteria that may permeate the meat will be killed. Enjoy.

However, the thing that I always check with meat is if it smells bad. Usually the worse thing that can happen is fat going rancid. Once that happens, nothing will make it taste good. I once had a country ham that "went south" and I tried to boil it out. Not even close to being edible.

They were cryopaced. If they pass the "smell" test, I'll cook them, but I will likely buy a fresh rack for the mrs. My stomach can handle almost anything, but if she gets sick, I'm in trouble.
