How can I tell if my food is cooked to the right temperature?

Cook foods to the correct internal temperature of 74 degrees C (165 degrees F) for a minimum time of 15 seconds. If the food you are cooking is large, insert a thermometer into the thickest area of the food item. Here are the safe minimum cooking temperatures:
