Is this turkey safe to eat?

Last night I went grocery shopping and bought prepackaged turkey lunch meat. I ran some other errands for an hour with the AC on in my car, and then got home where I forgot to bring that particular bag inside for another hour. So this turkey sat in my car for roughly two hours, one with the AC on and one not, at about 85 degrees outside.

As soon as I realized this I immediately put it in the fridge, and when I took it out of my car it was still somewhat cool to the touch, not refrigerator temp but not exactly warm either. Is this still safe to eat? Everything I've found in my googling so far seems to indicate 2 hours of being left out is the cutoff point for meat, but I'm not really sure what that means in my situation.
