Hello I cubed about 2 pounds of potatoes last night and put them in olive oil and seasoning, then left them covered in a glass bowl on the counter. I wanted to bake them tonight for dinner, but I'm not sure if these are safe to eat. Please advise.
Most potato-related food safety issues are more closely associated with other ingredients such as heavy cream or mayonnaise, even under ideal storage conditions.
However, to be on the safe side, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and start with a fresh batch for preparation and consumption. Any food left open like this for extended periods of time (such as overnight) as a general rule should not be consumed.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
