How long for miracle whip to spoil?

We were gone from saturday noonish and this morning monday I found we left out our Kraft Miracle whip out. The house is kept at about seventy two degrees? forty four hours out.

What do you think, should we throw it out?

What's in Miracle Whip, anyway? I suppose if it is just chemicals, maybe. I don't think I would risk it, myself.

You could , for example, leave a Twinkie out for years with no adverse affects.

Well, it has eggs in it, but most of the other ingrediants don't look like a big spoil risk.

As long as it wasn't left open & it doesn't stink I would keep it.
The wife would definitely throw it away.

The nose knows. How does it smell ? I would get rid of it, it is not worth getting sick over couple of bucks.

Sell it on Ebay as "biodiesel primal matter."

It's what, two bucks? When in doubt, throw it out.

If you get sickened by it, you'll have to be admitted into the Mayo Clinic!

Jar of "suspect" Miracle Whip: $3.95

Loaf of bread and a pound of balogna: $5.00

The whole family, spending two-three days, with intestinal distress and possibly a (pardon the pun) "run" to the local Mayo Clinic to test for food poisoning: PRICELESS!

For all other items near the picnic basket (and until the "Mayo Bill" arrives), it's Master Card!
