Albany-- After a feast yesterday, chances are you've got some leftovers in your refrigerator today.  But don't wait too long to eat them. Nutritionists say holding on to leftovers too long could leave you with some uncomfortable consequences- even food poisoning.

"Most of the time there are two things in the kitchen that are the culprits. Anything with mayonnaise in it- uh oh. Just don't leave it out more than an hour there on the shelf. Keep it in the fridge and certainly with the turkey and ham how long did it stay on the shelf," says nutritionist Charlie Rouse.

He says the best way to avoid getting sick off leftovers- date everything you put back in the refrigerator.
