Leftover sweet potato hiding in refrigerator

Asked January 22, 2020, 7:11 PM EST

I have some chunks of roasted sweet potatoes that were pushed to the back of the refrigerator. They smell fine. Feel like cold potato chunks. Is week To 10 days pushing the limits of safety?

They are probably ok. Look for mold and slim and off odor. If you see any of those signs throw them out. Be sure to heat them to 165 degrees F. If you or family members fall into the at risk group you might not have them consume them. Thanks for using Ask an Expert Nellie Oehler
