Avoid Undercooked Meat

Some temperature guidelines

(HealthDayNews) -- Meat that hasn't been cooked properly can harbor dangerous bacteria.

The University of California, Davis, suggests you use a food thermometer to determine meat's readiness. Here are a couple of temperature tips:

  • Red meats should be cooked to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Ground meat and hamburgers should be cooked all the way through until the center is at least 160 to 165 degrees F.
