Is meat that has been cooked on a low setting in a slow cooker safe to eat?
Yes. Slow cookers cook foods slowly at a low temperature between 170 and 280 F. It is believed that on the low setting that the food will rise to a temperature of greater than 140 F within four hours. During this short time period, it is unlikely that harmful bacteria could have grown or toxins could have formed.
