Refrigerated Ginger Paste-is it still good?

I bought refrigerated ginger paste at the store about 6 hours ago. I forgot to refrigerate it. Is it safe to use?

  1. I would use it. Just check the smell, if it is like ginger should smell, then keep it.

    1. Its fine, I've done the exact same thing and it was a hot day.

      1. 6 hours?

        It probably sat in some store's uncooled back warehouse longer than that before being stocked on a refrigerated shelf

        Or, in other words, no it's not safe to use. Send it over to me and I'll properly dispose of it for you. Hurry.
