i accidentally left my groceries in the car in the driveway for about 2.5 hours (the time was determined from the time on the receipt that i bought the items to the time i finally realized it). it was in the high 80's outside. the items were eggs, tropicana orange juice with calcium, and organic fat free milk. when i realized this i put them all in the fridge right away (obviously). are these still ok to consume?

No, generally you don't want to eat perishable foods after 2 hours with just room temperature.

But this was 2 and a half hours and it was hot your car. I would not eat these.
