Tomato Soup Left out Overnight

ios94 | Oct 18, 201307:30 AM

I forgot to fridge some tomato soup that we made last night. It had canned tomato juice, water, some vegetables, beans and pasta, no meat byproducts whatsoever.

I don't think it would be an issue but curious to know if there's any risk of bacteria even if minimal. It was left out for about 10 hours, I would think that it would have taken at least a few hours just to get to room temperature, so it probably only spent 5-7 hours at room temp.

Heck I've left raw rib steaks out overnight and never had an issue.

If Ruhlman can leave chicken stock out for days I can't see tomato juice for a few hours being an issue.

Should I have any concerns?
