How long can cottage cheese be left out of the refrigerator, say, at a party?

The FDA cautions consumers not to leave any perishable product at room temperature for more than 2 hours, or 1 hour where the temperature is above 90° F. If you’re really enjoying the party and forget how long your cottage cheese dish has been out on the buffet table, play it safe and throw it away.
