    Default condensation on outside of meat

    I have sausages in the fridge defrosting and they are in a sandwich bag. now there is watery condensation on the outside of the packet.. would this have meat in the watery stuff on the outside? the meat is still inside sealed but I worry because it touched the grapes.. the outside condensation if I'm making sense!

    would this be safe still.. just water?

    It's unlikely to have meat juice in the exterior condensation from the defrosting, but I'd probably throw the grapes which had been touched just to be safe.

    If the bag is sealed its fine. It's no different to the condensation on the milk bottle if you leave it out of the fridge.

    Given that when we have meat defrosting the blood somehow sleeps through the bag onto the plate/bowl whatever it's sitting in, I'd turf the touched grapes too.

    I'd rinse them under some water. Doubt there would be any meat juices on them though.
