The acidity in tomatoes runs 4.0-4.5 pH. Extremely high acid...in this environment it is unlikely that bacteria would reproduce....

For centuries this is the way home cooks would cool stuff off! (Remember the pie in the window?)

Bring up your soup to 165F for 2 minutes and you will have smooth sailing!

I'd count beef bouillon as meat.
It's a lot cheaper to throw out the pot than to get sick.


Here's a trick I use when I don't want to forget something in the kitchen. I turn the oven light on. When turning the lights off at night, if I've forgotten something in the kitchen, the oven light makes me notice.
I really should get a timer, mine isn't reliable.

Its probably ok but I would toss it. I am picky about that stuff, and you don't want to regret it!! Plus I bet it won't taste as good to you anymore becasue you'll be worried it will make you sick!

Yeah don't eat it - I just did that same thing when our power went out during an ice storm. I thought I'd kept something cold enough that I could still cook it and we all got sick from it - yuck!

Hi, I also agree with throwing it out. There is nothing that is valuable enough to make it worth chancing a GI illness!!

This is probably just me, but I am REALLY picky about this kind of stuff. I personally would not eat it. Especially if it was left uncovered, just imagine what could have dropped in there overnight? Ick.

I work in the food industry and the rule is If in doubt throw it out. BUT there is no meat in it sooo it might be OK. When you reheat it just make sure it is at the right temperature.165 F

I made such a boo boo. I was going to transfer the leftover soup into a container but needed to let it cool down first. Well, I forgot about it and left it out all night. When I woke up this morning I noticed it on the counter and shoved it in the fridge immediately. Do you think it's still good? There were no meat products in it. Here are the ingredients.
Campbell's Healthy Request, Tomato Soup, 2 cans
Tomato Sauce, 1 small can
beef boullion, 1.5 tsp
Lemon juice, .1 tsp
Splenda, .5 cup )
Onions, raw, 1 medium chopped)
Cabbage, fresh, 1 head, medium
