After skimming through the comments, it sounds like the technical answer is that you should toss it. However, many people see no problem eating food that has been left out and 9 times out of 10 you probably won't get sick from it. It is commonplace in many cultures to leave food out overnight. I lived with a family in Honduras for a summer and their fridge would be completely empty and yet they would store cooked food in their cupboards or covered on the stove. My mother in law (from Mexico), came to stay with us for a month after my daughter was born and she left cooked food on the stove overnight ALL the time. It drove me crazy because it was delicious food (chicken soup, arroz con leche, steak, etc) that I no longer wanted to eat as a nursing mother after it had sat out all night.
