Soyrizo left out (in package) overnight: eat or not eat?

That's basically it. About 5 days ago, I left accidentally left packaged soyrizo from Trader Joe's out overnight. It's been in the fridge since, and I thought I'd poll the hivemind to see if my instinct that it's totally fine to eat sounds correct. Thanks!

I double--no triple dog dare you to eat it.

(It's probably fine, smell it first.)

Don't eat. It's not expensive, and it's easy to replace.

I would eat it; if it's anything like this soyrizo, the oil and salt added to the soy protein are probably going to slow down bacterial decomposition long enough that it should be fine after one night out of the fridge.

I am not a doctor, and I am not your doctor, but if I were, I would write you a prescription for Eating That Soyrizo.

I believe the correct answer to this and any thread of this type is: eat it.

Is it completely vegetarian? And it sounds copiously salted? And it probably includes preservatives? I vote for "eat it."

I'm pretty sure I've done the exact same thing, eaten it, and been fine.

I've done this before many times. Eat it.

Speaking as somebody who has eaten soyrizo that I left out for not one, but TWO nights and suffered no ill effects, I heartily enjoin you to eat the shit out of that soyrizo.

OP, did you eat the soyrizo?

Response by poster: Update! I threw it out before I saw more of the responses, but fully intend to eat this meal made with its replacement, which hung out on the stove for much of the day yesterday.
