Reheating food - advice please

Postby whoopsie » Tue Mar 03, 2009 2:01 pm

I just had a Chilli con carne and rice from M&S. I heated it in the microwave for 3 and a half mins (for a 700w microwave, ours is an 800w microwave, but I always heat as if it was lower). Anyway, I checked it when it came out, and burnt my finger. As I was eating it, I noticed that some parts of the chilli were lukewarm/cold, but the majority of the rice was warm. Now, because I'm emetophobic, I'm starting to panic that I have made myself ill (again). Does it sound like I'm gonna be safe, considering it was fresh and kept refridgerated?

You'll be fine. Ready meals are generally cooked before hand and you just re-heat it.

You could have put in the microwave again for a minute if it was still cold

I know, I should've, but I was hungry and didn't think to. Idiot!

yes beef should be fine but chicken and pork must always be thoroughly cooked
if in doubt thought just chuck it, with your illness it's just not worth making yourself ill for the sake of a £2 ready meal
