Wondering if the low temperature setting on the slow cooker would be hot enough to kill any germs!Bit worried it won't be.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks.

They give temperatures and times for cooking pork either in the oven or slow cooker.

I cook mine on low for about 6-8and have also cooked it on High for 3-4 ours and it has been OK both ways.

My slow cooker cooks much faster than recipes state so def. Noprobs. Pretty sure no bugs would survive a long slow stewing.

Higher temperatures kill the bugs quickly where as at lower temperatures it just takes longer.
If you are worried about lower temperatures I use a sous vide machine and the piece of pork I cooked was cooked at 68C for 30 hours and was safe to eat.
