I went to my aunt's house for dinner and she was serving chicken salad... although the food doesn't really matter here so if you don't like chicken salad sub in something you do like. All the sandwiches were made and setting out. I noticed that the chicken wasn't really cold, just sort of room temperature. If something like this happened to you:
1) Would you be at all concerned about food handling safety?
2) Would you ask how long the stuff had been just sitting out?
3) If she didn't respond or just scoffed and said "oh it's fine!" would you trust her and eat it?
