Unrefrigerated Tofu

I apologize, because I know this might be in the memories somewhere, but I'm wondering--our power went out for a few days earlier this week (nasty snow storm).  The kitchen was cold enough, and I figured that vegan food, for the most part, wouldn't really go bad.  Well,  I opened a package of tofu a minute ago and sliced it up to dry--there were some funny off color spots, so I took a taste.  Oh man, it was awful.  So I'm guessing the tofu is bad?  Am I going to die since I ate some?  (Pardon the hyperbole.)  What else can go bad?  Off the top of my head, aside from veggies, there was some unopened silk creamer which tastes fine, but also a bunch of gimme lean sausage and beef, some tempeh, margarine, and hummus.  Should I throw it all out?  I'm trying to search, but am not coming up with anything about unopened, unrefrigerated tofu.  Thanks!

ETA:  Thanks for the advice, everyone!  The fridge has been purged, and I'll probably spend the rest of the week getting that stinky tofu smell out.
