Is is okay to leave serrano ham slices wrapped in their wax paper but on the counter?

I know, this is ridiculous but I don't want to give strangers food poisoning. I bought some serrano ham last night for a party and of course it was so good that I ate a few slices ...just to try it out.
Then I was super tired and forgot that I left it out. I know it is cured meat and left hanging on the ceilings in spanish locales for ages, but is there any problem when it is already sliced and left on the counter in a relatively hot NYC apartment?
Please assuage my paranoia. I really like these people and want a zero percent chance of making them ill!
