I took a 280lb pig in for processing and just discovered I forgot a front leg in the cooler. It was covered by a bag of ice. It's been in the cooler for 2 days and the ice melted at some point since. Cooler has been closed and its in cool water. The fat side is exposed to air in the cooler.
It's a nice leg and want to save it if I can. Is this a crazy thing to attempt or should I toss due to bacteria, etc?
I know the answer is probably toss it but I wanted to ask the seasoned pros here.
