Am I within my "rights" to return moldy strawberries?

Yesterday I bought a huge (4-lb) clamshell box of strawberries from Trader Joe's. I used about a pound of them yesterday and then mistakenly did not store them in the fridge. The ambient temperature in the kitchen has been around 80F. This evening I found that most of them have mold growing on them. Would it be fair for me to return them to Trader Joe's?

I understand that I did not store them properly, but it seems crazy to me that they would mold within a day. I've never had strawberries go bad that quickly before. It cost about $8 (which is a lot for me) so it just seems like such a waste.
