Question: How long can vacuum sealed high quality cheddar cheese last in the fridge once open, and how long can the same cheese last if it was left in an open fridge for 8 hours and then stored correctly under the same conditions.
If vacuum sealed high quality cheddar cheese is properly stored in the fridge after opening, it can last for about 2-3 weeks. However, if the cheese was left in an open fridge for 8 hours, it might have developed bacteria already, and the shelf life will be shorter. If you can't confirm if the cheese was exposed to 40°F (4°C) or lower temperature after it was left in the open fridge for 8 hours, it is best to err on the side of caution and assume that the cheese is no longer safe to eat. In most cases, it is recommended to consume perishable foods within two hours of leaving them out at room temperature.
