Not a good idea - once it's below 135 for 4 hours it must be disposed of and under no conditions should it be reheated. There's enough bacteria growth that even reheating will not make it safe. The nasties may die but their bodies remain on/in the meat and they can make a person sick. Probably not life threatening but enough to make a friend of the porcelin god.
