The cornmeal is still good and has calories for an emergency. Storage in warm temperatures may have accelerated the degradation of vitamins, but all of the proteins, carbohydrates, etc. are still there and available. The best method is to prepare some in a recipe. If they taste awful, you'll want to replace them. If they taste okay, keep them. There will be no food safety hazard.
