How Long Can Colby Jack Sit Out?

While Colby Jack cheese can withstand moderate temperatures for short periods, it's always best to refrigerate it promptly. Leaving Colby Jack cheese sitting out at room temperature for an extended period can promote bacterial growth and compromise its safety.

To ensure the freshness and quality of your Colby Jack cheese, store it in the refrigerator at a temperature below 40°F (4°C). Ideally, place it in airtight packaging or wrap it tightly in plastic wrap to prevent moisture loss and potential contamination.
