Cooking food safely requires that you raise the internal temperature of the meat high enough and for a long enough period of time to kill any foodborne bacteria that may cause illnesses.
Color is not the best indicator that food is safe to eat. Use a high-quality probe thermometer to be sure your food is properly cooked. Place the tip of an instant-read thermometer into the center of the thickest part of the food but at least 1/2 inch deep. Read the temperature after about 10 seconds. Follow the temperature guidelines for the type of food you’re cooking.
