My fridge door was left open over night with the fridge light on. Is my dairy products safe to eat?

  • What temperature did it reach & for how long? Did the milk go lumpy? Does it smell 'off'? – Tetsujin Mar 19 '19 at 19:36
  • I tested this with my refridgerator and discovered that I had to open the door four (4) inches before the light went on. Four inches! And my door automatically closed at that point. So, just how open was your door? – elbrant Mar 20 '19 at 3:21

    What's the room temperature overnight? Is the light a traditional bulb or LED? (the latter delivers much more heat). Hard cheese will be fine and pasteurised milk will normally spoil detectably – Chris H Mar 20 '19 at 9:30
