Food Safety Question (left soup out overnight!) [moved from Home Cooking]

bellywizard Feb 24, 2012 04:28 AM

The title basically says it all...

I made chicken soup last night, and accidentally left it in a room that was about 8 Celcius / 46 Fahrenheit (for about 12 hours). It's now in the fridge.

Would cooking it eliminate any potential nasty bacteria?
Should I just throw this out?
Any advice, especially based on some good hard knowledge, would be appreciated!

    Just noticed that the topic's been dealt with:

    Responses are still welcome, esp since the temperature the soup was at is fairly low...
