Be Left Out?
So many people love cream cheese! Even though cream cheese adds flavor to every food we eat it with, it has a particular challenge. It spoils quickly.
It is unsafe to leave your cream cheese out for MORE THAN TWO HOURS. It will go bad quickly because of various microbial activities.
Cream cheese quickly goes bad because of its nutrient-rich properties and semi-liquid state (soft and moist). Microbes act quicker on liquid foods than on solid foods.
If you want to eat some cream cheese, but you cannot consume everything in the container, take what you need and then put the rest back in the fridge.
You should not eat bad cream cheese. Eating bad cream cheese can lead to food poisoning, so you should dispose of it and not eat it.
