Refrigeration required: pasteurized juice after opening?

Commented on June 15, 2013

I'm a bit confused, so maybe someone could clue me in.

I purchased a quart of 365 brand pasteurized cranberry juice (from concentrate).

I had some here at work. There wasn't room in fridge at work, so I have it in my travel insulated lunch container (with two ice packs, which are still ice).

I won't be home till midnight (7 hours from now), and I know the ice packs won't be cold that long, and clearly the inside of my container is not in the prescribed "food safety zone".

Question:


If it's pasteurized, and the remaining juice stays in the original container with the cap tight, will it spoil?

Does it required bacteria to spoil, and if so, wasn't it all killed during pasteurization?

I'm sure I'm missing something pretty basic here, and would love to understand the why-behind-the-what.

Thanks,

Mike

Thanks @Dragonfly. I figured it would be ok, but it's nice to have someone else's opinion as well !!!
