    Help!! I left the plastic "diaper" on the roast!!

    Not my greatest cooking moment: I put a roast in the crockpot this morning and when I checked it just now, I noticed that I accidentally left that little plastic sheet/diaper/pad on the bottom of the roast. It's been cooking with the roast for 4 hours. I took it out (it was soaking wet and falling apart).

    Is the roast safe to eat? Or is it a restaurant night? icon_redface.gif

    Thank you thank you!

    I think it's probably ok and you are lucky you saw it before you served it - icon_biggrin.gif i once roasted a turkey that came from a supermarket dinner (ie precooked) without taking off the plastic wrapping -

    Anyway, my feeling is that those things are pretty food safe, and so long as they did not melt or mix into anything in a way that they cannot be removed, you should be ok.

    If there is someone with more professional knowledge, I'd like to know, as this is the kind of thing I do, too!

    I don't have 'more' knowledge than you, but,, maybe can put in my 2 cents. I agree with you, duonyte, that, if it didn't melt at all and get attached to the roast so that it would be eaten, then it's fine to just take it off now that you've noticed it. If you want to be extra careful, then maybe just trim the part of the meat that came in contact with it.

    My daughter did this too, not long ago when she made dinner for us. I didn't find it till we were finished with dinner and we are all fine. Just gives us something to tease her about for years to come:)
