Hi Rebecca,

The temperature danger zone for food safety is from 40-140 degrees F. Perishable foods like milk are recommened to be limited to 2-4 hours in this zone. This time is cumulative, so if you warm a food, then cool it back down, and then warm it up again, the time adds up. Another rule of thumb in food safety is "when in doubt, throw it out".

I hope that helps.
