Do You Know Where Your Food Thermometer Is?

by: News Canada


(NC)-Consumers have long been advised to use food thermometers to measure the internal temperature of foods, such as meat and poultry, to verify that a safe temperature is reached and that harmful bacteria like Salmonella and E. coli O157:H7 are destroyed.
There are many good reasons to use a food thermometer. Food thermometers help you to:

cook food to a safe temperature
prevent overcooking and get the best flavour
take the guesswork out of cooking

During this barbecue season, remember to use an instant-read food thermometer every time you prepare beef patties. Health Canada recommends cooking ground beef to a minimum internal temperature of 71°C (160°F). Insert a probe-type instant-read thermometer through the side of the beef patty until the tip reaches the centre. Fork-style temperature devices can be inserted through the top into the centre of the patty.
For more information on food safety, visit the Canadian Partnership for Consumer Food Safety Education Web site at www.canfightbac.org.
