From the Test Kitchen
Test Kitchen Tip:
For safety's sake, ground meats (pork, veal, or beef) need to be cooked to 160 degree F; ground poultry (chicken or turkey) should be cooked to 165 degree F. An easy way to check the temperature of ground meat dishes is to use an instant-read thermometer. Insert the thermometer about 1/4 inch into the loaf for 10 seconds.
