How long does it take before non-refrigerated chicken spoils? What is the danger if I eat such chicken?

If it is raw chicken (not previously cooked) is exposed to room temps of 70-72 degrees F, about 2 hours tops - perhaps as little as an hour. Common sense says that if the raw chicken has spoiled (due to the high level of salmonella bacteria), you'll suffer gastric distress (and/or diarrhea) if you consume it.

FWIW, approx. 5000 deaths occur in US from foodborne illnesses such as salmonella.

Thank you.

I bought a salad at a supermarket where the employee starts with a bowl of romaine lettuce and then the customer tells him which items to add from rows of containers in front of the employee. Most of the items are vegetables but chicken is included also. I assume it is cooked chicken.

I purchased such a salad today including the chicken. When I started to eat it I found that the chicken had a bad smell.
