IN reality because its a protein food then you should keep it at between 1 and 5 degrees. IN an ambiant room its safe for about 1 to 2 hours at max before it starts to deteriorate. The environmental heat will drive the need to refrigerated. As most homes have heating running at this time of year its much safer to lean toward food safety and refrigerate
