Default Thawing meat?

Last evening I took some cooked prok butt out of the freezer and forgot it on the counter until early this morning. I stuck a thermometer in it and it's 56 degrees in the outside of the package. Does the danger zone apply the same way to cooled meat as it does to raw meat. It's in the frig now, should I toss it?

Thanks

How long has it been that temp? What's the internal temp?

Here's some info to help out.

I have no way of knowing how long it was at that temp, the internal temp was 46 degrees.

Yes toss it as under running potable water, reefer or Mic is the only approved methods to defrost. That many hours you have bacteria growing and releasing toxins into the meat and no amount of cooking will do away with the toxin's.
