Default I left bacon in the trunk of my car overnight. Safe to eat?

I left bacon in the trunk of my car overnight. It was a warm humid night (~87 degrees in Texas)

Is it safe to eat? The package is airtight and the meat didn't change color at all.

I decided to cook it and eat it anyway. Too good to pass up!

Yes, it is safe but don't cook it first.

If the packages wasn't opened, smoked meat is pretty resistant to spoiling. It should have been OK unless it was really warm in your trunk.

I heard that the human race actually died out during the middle ages because there was no electricity to run their refrigerators.

Yeah, but those stupid humans were weaklings.
