What is safe minimum internal temperature for foods?

All foods must reach at-least a minimum internal temperatures. Use a food thermometer before removing food from the heat source.

Safe Cooking Temperatures

Use the chart below and a food thermometer to ensure that meat, poultry, seafood, and other foods that need to be cooked reach a safe minimum internal temperature. Remember, you can’t tell whether meat is safely cooked just by looking at it. Any cooked, uncured red meats – including pork – can be pink, even when the meat has reached a safe internal temperature.
