I mixed up some tinned tuna and some mayonnaise the other day, and put it in the fridge. Today, I mixed in that tuna mayo with some pasta I just made, so I guess it heated up a fair bit. I've now put the food back into the fridge for tomorrow.

Is that ok? Opinions please.

OP this is perfectly ok to eat.We make Tuna mayo that lasts 48 hours ( food & Hygiene) but keep it for 72 hours Max as long as it's kept in fridge.

you missed the point about partially reheating the mayo /tuna then going into fridge

I didn't miss that & wouldn't eat anything warmed up & then put back.

Did you let the warmed food completely cool to room temperature before putting back in the fridge, yellowputty? If not, then you will increase the chances of the forming of bacteria.

If the OP let the food cool before placing a lid on it & then putting it in the fridge then it will still be ok to eat.

pretty sure you're wrong there. Food needs to be chilled / frozen quickly from a warm temperature. Never let it get to room temperature.

the longer food is left out at room temperature, “the greater the chance of bacteria multiplying and growing,” says Dr. Carl Winter, a food toxicologist and director of the food safety program at the University of California–Davis. Sinister bugs such as salmonella, campylobacter, and E. coli all grow much faster at room temperature than in a cool environment.

The USDA advises chilling as promptly as possible and says you should never leave food out for more than two hours


same as you shouldnt defrost meat at room temperature either.

As long as you have it cold it will be fine.

The refrigeration of hot food isn't to do with the forming of bacteria on the hot food, it's to do with the heating of the fridge, potentially warming up the fridge for other food to grow bacteria. As long as the stuff isn't piping hot in the fridge, and only luke warm, that is fine as well.

That advice (from another expert) has certainly changed since I sent to school.

Thanks for the update.
