Beets Left Out Over Night?

After roasting some lovely organic red beets last night I forgot to refrigerate them.
Do they need to be thrown away now?
My guess, yes. Since they are starchy like potatoes and left out potatoes are a no-no.
TIA & Happy Cooking!
I cannot tell you how often I have left potatoes out overnight and eaten them on subsequent days without as much as a hiccup. Mashed forgotten in the microwave, baked forgotten in the oven, etc. This sort of thing had been happening for decades before I heard that spuds could spoil, so I don't worry about it. I don't cook beets but if I did, I wouldn't worry about them either.
