Unintentionally left a pot of hardboiled eggs in ice water for six hours. Toss out, or save?

Took a pot of hardboiled eggs off the stove, drained the water, put in two large measuring cups of ice and water to cover, as I usually do. Got a phone call, dashed out.
Six hours later upon my return, the water in the pot was quite cool, not cold. Eggs peeled easily and don't smell off. Now they are in the fridge. Keep, or toss?
