Concern about packing Mayo

I don't know exactly how long it is before mayonnaise goes bad when packed in a lunch, but I do remember reading in several magazines that the concern over mayonnaise going bad was more when people made it themselves. Store bought mayo is pasturized (or the eggs are or something...) and so it is safe to use it for lunches and picnics. However, the meat (tuna, chicken, etc.) might go bad if left too long at room temperature; so I still think you would need to use an ice pack or freeze a juice box or something to help keep it cool.
