National Food Safety Education Month: Minimum Internal Cooking Temperatures

Sep. 6, 2022

🌡The safety of your food and your health matter. Both should be handled with care, and at the very least, a thermometer!

The National Restaurant Association ServSafe has provided a useful Food Safety Basics Comprehensive Cooking Temperature Chart based on guidance from the FDA Food Code on safe minimum internal temperatures for meat and poultry prior to consumption.

You should always use a food thermometer to assure that raw meat, eggs, poultry, and seafood have reached a safe minimum internal temperature. Refer to the chart below the next time you’re roasting poultry and more, and stay out of the temperature danger zone.
