Hamburger temperature monitoring tips for the Fourth of July weekend
This long weekend will be one of the biggest weekends for burger restaurants and pop-ups, so we wanted to give you some best practice advice for monitoring your hamburger temperature to help prevent the spread of harmful bacteria such as E-coli and Salmonella.
Whilst steaks can be served rare, Foodsafety.gov recommends that hamburgers are cooked thoroughly until well done. Harmful bacteria such as E.coli and Salmonella can be carried on the surface of whole cuts of meat, and unfortunately, this bacteria is usually undetectable. Once these whole cuts of meat are minced, harmful bacteria is then spread throughout the meat. By making sure that your hamburgers are cooked through, you’re killing off bacteria and ultimately protecting the health of your customers!
The Foodsafety.gov guidelines state that hamburgers and other ground meat should be cooked until the internal temperature reaches 155°F-160°F and maintains that temperature for at least 2 minutes.
