I think you'll see some controversy in peoples opinions. Technically, if food is heated back to an adequate temperature for an adequate amount of time, it would be pasteurized. Even the botulinum toxin is denatured at temperatures greater than 176F. So in my opinion, even if the food has spoiled, if it is pasteurized it should not pose an actual food borne illness threat based on my understanding.

That said, that's not what safe food handling rules allow and simply from a food quality standpoint pasteurized spoiled meat is still nasty!
