Pressure-cooked chickpeas left in pot for hours

I cooked some chickpeas in the pressure cooker and let the pressure come down naturally. But, it had just come down when I needed to leave the house quickly and didn't want to put something so warm in the fridge. (I don't know why I didn't think of just rinsing them in cool water... I was in a rush!) Anyway, I thought I'd be back in 2 hours, but I got sidetracked and the beans sat in the (unopened) pressure cooker for 5 or 6 hours. I rinsed and refrigerated them, but I'm wondering if there is any risk that something bad happened to them in that time. Any insight would be appreciated!
