Is it safe to eat cream cheese that has been unrefrigerated for 24 hours?

Asked by
I'm making oreo balls (cream cheese, oreos, and baking chocolate) and I got all the supplies yesterday and left them sitting out. I just now went to go make the oreo balls and realized I had a derp moment last night and left the cream cheese sitting out. It's been about 24-26 hours since it's been in a fridge environment. >.< It's factory sealed, but I'm still wondering if it's safe to make the oreo balls out of it? Or do I need to go ahead and get a different thing of cream cheese to be safe?
