The right food temperature...


Do you know what temperature you should cook your foods to in order to make sure they are safe to eat, avoiding infection like salmonella?


A food thermometer can really help...


According to the CDC you should cook foods to the following safe internal temperatures:


  • 145°F for beef, veal, lamb, and fish (then let the meat rest for 3 minutes before carving or eating)

  • 145°F for pork and ham (then let the meat rest for 3 minutes before carving or eating)

  • 160°F for ground beef, ground pork, ground veal, and ground lamb

  • 160°F for egg dishes

  • 165°F for poultry (chicken, turkey, duck), including ground chicken /ground turkey

  • 165°F for casseroles

  • Microwave food to 165°F or above.


Take care of your body, my friends! It’s the only one you get!
