I just picked up my IUD prescription from the pharmacy

Patient: I just picked up my IUD prescription from the pharmacy yesterday. I left the box in my car over night and the temperatures dropped below zero degrees Celcius. This morning I read the box containing the IUD and it states to store the device between 15-30 degrees Celcius. Is the IUD still useable? Or do I need a new one?
