Does canned food spoil if you leave it unrefrigerated for a couple hours? I've wondered about this for awhile. Occasionally, we feed Murphy and leave the food sitting out. I suspect it might be ok, but I don't want to chance it so we normally just throw the can out. I should mention that we normally take a couple of weeks to use up a can of moist food. We don't feed Murphy moist food, exactly. I feed him dry, but smear a little of moist food on my finger or a spoon, then smear it on the food to flavor it a bit. After Murphy eats, we put a lid on the can and put it back in the refrigerator. We could get a month - 5 weeks out of a 13 oz. can. Murphy rarely eats the whole can. After a couple weeks, I decide we've gotten enough use out of the can and toss it out. I'm sure it would spoil if I left it out uncovered overnight or for a day, but I'm never sure about it after, say, an hour. Generally, my thinking is that it's better to err on the side of caution. Reason I bring this up now is we left a can out this morning for several hours (w/ the lid on) and it mistakenly got put back in the refrigerator. I forgot it had been left out until after Murphy ate. As per usual, Murphy ate a very tiny amount of it, so I assume it smelled ok to him. Of course, I threw out the can as soon as I realized what happened and put out a fresh can. I'm not too concerned (he's eaten worse), but what does the board think? Thanks.
