Is cold soup safe to eat?

How do you know when soup goes bad?
Your soup should have a lovely aroma when you smell it. If your soup smells sour or unpleasant, it’s probably spoiled and should be thrown out. If your soup smells stale or sour, don’t taste it to see if it’s safe to eat. You could get sick if you eat rotten food.
How do you keep the soup from spoiling?
Because freezing reduces the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and molds that cause food spoilage and food poisoning, freezing is an effective way to preserve perishables. Almost anything, from leftover soups to half a pepper, can be frozen.
