Help me out with some food safety, TQC. 

This morning about 8:30am, I put stuff in my slow cooker for a chili. The ingredients were: quinoa, water, tomato paste, kidney beans, black beans, sauteed veggies (celery, bell pepper, jalepeno) and various spices/herbs. No meat. 

The recipe said to cook on low for 4-6 hours, but I'm working 10 hours and won't be home until 8pm or so. My boyfriend ran home around 5:30pm and put the slow cooker on the "keep warm" setting. Is it safe to stay on this setting for 2.5-3 hours? Am I going to die a terrible death from food poisoning? :P
