Depends: Cool formula is ok but your real concern is how long was it out. It may be too old. Most people will say 60min out is time to get rid of milk. I rec not more than 35 - 45 min max. Another issue is why was it so hot that it needed cooling? I hope you are not heating it in microwave. Good luck. Jp.
