Why you shouldn't eat left over onions

Post by Amatur Rahmaan on Mon Jul 20, 2009 2:53 pm


I have used an onion which has been left in the fridge, and sometimes I
don't use a whole one at one time, so save the other half for later.

Now with this info, I have changed my mind....will buy smaller onions in
the future.
People are always worried that mayonnaise will spoil.An expert in the food industry's answer will surprise you. He said that all commercially-made Mayo is completely safe.

"It doesn't even have to be refrigerated. No harm in refrigerating it,
but it's not really necessary." He explained that the pH in mayonnaise
is set at a point that bacteria could not survive in that environment.
He then talked about the quaint essential picnic, with the bowl of
potato salad sitting on the table and how everyone blames the mayonnaise
when someone gets sick.

He says that when food poisoning is reported, the first thing the
officials look for is when the 'victim' last ate ONIONS and where those
onions came from (in the potato salad?). Ed says it's not the mayonnaise
(as long as it's not homemade Mayo) that spoils in the outdoors. It's
probably the onions, and if not the onions, it's the POTATOES.

He explained, onions are a huge magnet for bacteria, especially uncooked
onions. You should never plan to keep a portion of a sliced onion. He
says it's not even safe if you put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in
your refrigerator.

It's already contaminated enough just by being cut open and out for a
bit, that it can be a danger to you. He also says if you take the leftover onion and cook it like crazy you'll probably be okay, but if you slice that leftover onion and put on your sandwich, you're asking for trouble. Both the onions and the moist potato in a potato salad, will attract and grow bacteria faster than any commercial mayonnaise will even begin to break down.

So, how's that for news? Take it for what you will. I (the author) am
going to be very careful about my onions from now on. For some reason, I
see a lot of credibility coming from a chemist and a company that
produces millions of pounds of mayonnaise every year.'

Also, dogs should never eat onions. Their stomachs cannot metabolize

Assalaamu Alaykum

Maybe if the source of the information is given, than we can verify its credibility. I have been eating left over onions for years and Alhamdulillah I am quite healthy. What must we do if we dont need to use a whole onion? I will most definitely not throw the rest of it away.
