How long can you leave pickles out of the fridge?
Pickles are one of the food items that are not on the recommended list for discarding if left out of the refrigerator for 2 hours. The United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service lists "fruits, vegetables, hard cheese, canned meat or fish, chips, bread, crackers, peanut butter, jelly, mustard, and pickles" as items that do not need refrigeration so you can transport them to a picnic without refrigeration or put in a bag lunch without a source to keep it cold. However, they also describe pickles as items that will only last two months in the refrigerator after being opened. In earlier times, people kept pickles without refrigerating them, but those may have been fermented (brined) pickles. There are different methods of preparing pickles, so it is possible that certain methods result in pickles that are safer out of the refrigerator than others. There have been cases of listeria in refrigerator pickles that were left out of the refrigerator as part of the preparation, which could affect people with weakened immune systems, and leaving those out of the refrigerator would not be 100% safe. Pickles can occasionally become moldy, too. If you ate pickles that were left out overnight, it is not likely you will suffer, but to be safe, refrigerate opened pickles.

Yes, you can put bananas in the refrigerator, but note that it SLOWS the ripening process. Refrigerate bananas when the banana reaches the stage of ripeness that you prefer.
