My doubts about bacteria in a bag are based on what we think about the bacteria and the weather. Most of the bacteria we like struggle to survive in high temperatures. The back of a closed truck can easily go past 140 on a hot day. So the question for me is did the bag lay in a hot truck and for how long? Or did the bag lay out on the dock in the sun ? You can fry an egg on a good hot day.
