Improperly cooked meat this morning—toss it, right?

calf | Jul 1, 2013 04:37 PM

My dad used a rice cooker to steam two chicken legs (for 5 minutes, which seems a little short IMO) this morning, and forgot to chill them. They were left in the cooker, unopened, for about 6 hours today. We examined it now, and the meat actually looks done while the joints have some red bits. I am in favor of throwing them out because it completely goes against the standard "rules" for handling meat, but he says it is okay to reheat them thoroughly. What to do?
