Food Safety Myth: If a Hamburger Turns Brown in the Middle it’s Cooked to a Safe Internal Temperature
According to the Partnership for Food Safety Education, “You cannot use visual cues to determine whether food has been cooked to a safe internal temperature. The only way to know that food has been cooked to a safe internal temperature is to use a food thermometer. Ground meat should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees F, as measured by a food thermometer.”
See my previous post about the various food thermometers.
