Fun Fact Friday: Safe at 160

This Labor Day weekend, many Americans (my family included) will be firing up their grills and cooking hamburgers for family and friends. But do you know just how done your burger should be?

Hamburgers should be cooked until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees (medium), as read by a meat thermometer inserted sideways into the center of the patty. Of course, if you prefer your burger a little more done, that’s perfectly OK! Just know it’ll be safe and juicy at 160 degrees.
