How Long Can Brie Cheese Sit Out?

Like most perishable items, brie cheese should not be left at room temperature for an extended period. In such an environment, bacteria multiply rapidly, thus increasing the risk of foodborne illnesses.

When Brie cheese sits out for longer than two hours, it's advisable to discard it.

To enjoy Brie cheese at its best, keep it refrigerated and only bring it out for serving at gatherings or meals where it can safely rest for 30 minutes before serving.
