pork loin in crockpot with power outage

Asked September 25, 2019, 2:01 PM EDT

I put a refrigerated pork loin in the crockpot at 5:50 am to cook for 6 hours on low - there was a power outage at approximately 11:30 am and the power was not restored until around 1:30. My daughter turned the crockpot back on low for another hour and then it will turn to warm. Is it safe to eat?
