How Long Can Feta Cheese Sit Out?

One of the most common questions when it comes to cheese is how long it can sit out of the refrigerator before it becomes unsafe to consume. The same applies to feta cheese.

Generally, feta cheese should not be left unrefrigerated for more than two hours. This is because feta cheese is a perishable dairy product that can promote bacterial growth at room temperature.

Extended exposure to warm temperatures increases the risk of contamination and spoilage, compromising its quality and safety.

To ensure the freshness of your feta cheese, always store it in the refrigerator and promptly return any leftover portions after use.
