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

  • 2

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!

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