crock pot + ground meat question


I read somewhere that you're not supposed to put raw ground meat in a crock pot (like for chili) because it doesnt' get hot enough fast enough to kill bacteria. But then I thought about meatballs - you don't have to cook those the whole way through to make them in the crock. So if, for instance, I were to cook chili without browning the meat first, would this be unsafe or just lack the extra flavor oomf that browning first gives?
