Can orange juice go bad in the truck of my car?!

Question: Can orange juice go bad in the truck of my car!?
I went grocery shopping earlier and when I was unloading the bags at home, I accidently left the orange juice in my trunk!. (It was in a plastic gallon container)!. About two or three hours later, I realized it was missing and went back to the car where I found it!. It wasn't warm, but it was wasn't cold either!. It was a bit cooler than room temperature!. Anyway, would it be okay for me to still drink it or not!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Oh yeah!. It will be fine!. You are talking to an professional orange juice drinker!.
I leave it by my bed and drink it in the middle of the night and in the morning!.
If it tastes fine it is fine!. Infact it will begin to taste bad BEFORE it will hurt you!.
On another note: Honey is the only natural food that NEVER spoils!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yes the orange juice can go bad!.!.!.in a sense!.

Will it hurt you, probably not since it has been pasteurized or flash pasteurized!.

If you took it out and it was cool, refrigerate ASAP!. You may notice it may taste a little different but it won't hurt you!. It will be just the quality of the juice that won't be as good!.

Optimum temp for OJ is between 32-40*F!. Try to keep it there for optimum taste!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

it is fine!. unless it was really hot out and it made the OJ hot and you can tell that the bottle has blown up a bit due to air trapped inside, it is still good to drink!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

as long as it hasn't been sitting in direct sunlight for hours on end it'll be fine!. you'll see weather it looks any different or not!. it's things like milk that you need to watchWww@FoodAQ@Com

should be!. um next time really make sure you get everything out because any longer, the juice WILL go bad since it needs to stay cold!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

it probly is old!.!.!. it depends if it was relle hot out, if soo, then dont take the chance, just throw it out and buy a new one!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yeah its still ok as long as you refrigerate as soon as possible,Www@FoodAQ@Com
