Safe Minimum Internal Temperatures

 

food thermometer Use this chart and a food thermometer to ensure that meat, poultry, seafood, and other cooked foods reach a safe minimum internal temperature.

Remember, you can’t tell whether meat is safely cooked or "done" just by looking at it. Color and texture are unreliable.  Make sure your food has reached the correct temperature to kill illness-causing bacteria.  Meat question mark
