So Foam, does that mean that your Boudin isn't safe to eat? Doesn't all that rice in there get reheated in the sausage?
My boudin could very easily not be safe, I do all I can to feel comfortable with it. I am sure that I have gotten the GI's from bad rice in the past. I would imagine everyone has at one time or another depending upon the frequency of eating rice and the abilities of the cook. We get it from any food unsafely maintained or prepared.
Just like we can get botulisum from bad sausage, we eliminate all the possibilities possible, even to the fact of adding cure now to be safe. Doesn't rice deserve care? For a few cents more why would you chance it?

I live in probably the most predominate rice eating american section of the US. Unless you are talking in mass quanities, I would ask why would you re-heat. I throw rice out a couple a times a week. you always cook more than needed. You could make rice pudding with the left overs but here rice is a mainstay not so much a desert food.
Rice is too easy to make. Its the cheapest starch to buy. You can usually taste reheated rice.
Rice is the fastest of all starches to turn to sugar. Its why it spoils so fast, its why runners and athletes eat it. Its like jet fuel in the human body because of it. What I am saying is, it is the fastest and easiest for the body to convert to food/energy that it can use.
I know, I ramble. Its too easy to make fresh delicious steaming hot rice at very little cost, why would you reheat it? Its abundant, its inexpensive, its simple to make, are ya just lazy?
All that being said, I do immediately freeze some ziplocs of rice to use with seal a meals (go cups) for my Baby sis to carry off to work. That way she doesn't need to leave the office if busy and still get a good meal, and she can apprecaite some outstanding food I have prepared. LOL In a ziploc, open the zipper just a wee bit and nuc in the microwave. I don't freeze wet or gooie rice!
I had been waiting for boudin to jump out. I expect my boudin to be reheated as with sushi as fried rice etc.
Although if a neighbor or friend or anyone invited me to have gumbo and pulled out a pan with yesterday's rice to use, I would not say a word. But I wouldn't accept an invitation again. The same could be said about Uncle Ben's minute rice.
I think you missed my point,
" It's too easy to make fresh delicious steaming hot rice at very little cost, why would you reheat it? Its abundant, its inexpensive, its simple to make, are ya just lazy?"
