I intend to lunch with rice instead of bread.

Now, I'm really concerned about health issues. At my work place there is no possibility for cooling or heating the rice. So I would eat the rice cold, no problem for me I like it.

However it also means that the rice isn't cooled in a fridge untill I eat it.

I cook the rice in the evening and put it in the fridge than. I will leave at 6AM, and will eat it at 1 PM. So that means it's 7 hours out of the refrigerator. Before that it's about 10 hours inside the refrigerator. So I eat it 17 hours after cooking it.

How likely is it that I get a food poisoningfrom this? I don't know if it is relevant but the rice is brown basmati rice.
