I would not chance it. The meat has never been brought to a hot temp that would kill any bacteria if bateria were present. Throw it out; for the cost, it is not worth the risk.

SOURCE: Cooks too hot
It would SEEM that this pot has a nanufacturing problem, where the thermal switches, that actually cycle the unit off when it reaches a certain temperature, are faulty...right from the factory. Its common to get a run of faulty thermal units, and is often seen in Coffee Makers.

Probably, nothing. About 6 years ago the standards on these were changed, to increase low to 200 degrees instead of 180, high to 300. Things that took 6 hours can now take 4. If you are using older recipes, or recipes perfected in older pots, they will always overcook. You can check this by putting water in, covering, and checking with an instant read thermometer after 1 hour. If it is 200, there is nothing wrong with you or the pot.

Testimonial: "This makes a lot of sense. I am cooking a pot roast right now and reduced the time by a third so I'll see if that will work. Thank you."
Low and High are cooking levels, warm is to keep the food warm after it is cooked.
