    Default Listeria in Meat

    I am just wondering if anyone else has left frozen meat out on the kitchen bench to thaw and then cooked it?
    I read that meat should either be thawed in a fridge, under cold water or in a microwave as bacteria grows at room temperature therefore makes it easier to contract a food borne illness.I thought that cooking meat thoroughly would kill bacteria but am not sure now and am worried about contracting Listeria.

    In winter I generally defrost mine at room temp, just make sure I fridge it once it's done.
