What else is in it? Tomatoes themselves are not meant to be refrigerated. There is a flavor compound that is destroyed at lower temps. Of course depending on what else in in with the tomatoes you sometimes have to sacrifice those flavor compounds for safety.

It sounds like what you have is just tomatoes so I would say as long as it looks and smells fine then you have nothing to worry about.

Just to be on the safe side .... bring whatever sauce your going to make with them to a boil for at least 1 minute to kill any little nasties.
