Will my cheese kill me?

The following is just a hypothetical situation...

But if I were to have bought cheese (a soft goat, and a Brie) from a market in Montreal 3 days ago (Fri)
Put it in my bag for 8 hours in 74F heat
Then put on top of the air conditioning unit at a hotel overnight
Then put in refrigerator next morning once realizing we had a refrigerator
Then sat in said refrigerator for 2.5 days
Then removed upon checking out of hotel at 4pm today (Mon)
Then sat in hotel lobby and then airport and flight and not returned to a refrigerator until probably about 10pm (estimated)

Can I still eat it after this? I have no idea if pasteurized but am assuming not b/c the hypothetical cheese would have been purchased in Montreal.

Thoughts?? I really want to eat it.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
