What happens if you leave milk out for 3 hours?

In general, perishable foods like milk should not sit out of the refrigerator or cooler for longer than two hours. Cut that time down to an hour in the summer if the temperature reaches 90 degrees F. After that time frame, bacteria can start to grow.

What happens when milk is left at room temperature?

Complete answer: When milk is left at room temperature during the summer, it undergoes an oxidation reaction and microbe development, causing it to become sour. Lactose is fermented and transformed into lactic acid by bacteria at room temperature.
