    Default Oops - fridge door ajar - toss or keep the milk?

    Hubby had a midnight snack and left the refrigerator door ajar... I discovered it about six hours later - everything inside had condensation on it and was basically at room temperature... including about 9 oz of fresh breast milk that was stored at the back of the fridge on the top shelf... it's cold again now but.... I hate to toss it, that's a full day's supply, but don't want to give baby bad milk.

    Would you toss or keep??

    Smell it. If it smells sour then toss it, if not, I would use it.

    It is probably okay but taste it first.
