Safe cooking temperatures are different depending on the meat source and the cooking time, but generally: Chicken is 165 degrees F, Stuffed food is 165 degrees F, Sausage is 155 degrees F, Ground beef is 155 degrees F, Steak, pork & seafood is 145 degrees F.
The Food Industry plays an important role in keeping food safe by identifying and managing food safety risks, and by complying with all of food safety regulations. … Anyone who sells food in the US is responsible for making sure it is safe to eat. The FDA verifies that food sold meets federal food safety standards. When potentially unsafe food is identified, the FDA works with industry and other government departments to ensure that it is removed from the marketplace. Consumers also have a role to play in protecting themselves and their families.

One of them is contamination, also one of the most publicized threats to food safety, simply when a …food source comes in contact with another contaminated object that disease will spread; this is most commonly seen with the bacteria E. coli. Another is the use of pesticides and insecticides in agriculture. The widespread use of these chemicals is leading to the evolution of drug resistant insects and bacteria that could potentially wipe out crops leading to famine. Also genetic engineering is also a threat to the safety of our food; food allergies that were unseen can pose a major health issue, also the mixing of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) not deemed safe for human consumption with the rest of our food. In the mid-2000's a GMO corn product that was deemed unsafe for humans but safe for cattle was inadvertently entered into our food supplies and products. This mixing cause major allergic reactions and an FDA study at the time showed it to be in 70% of all corn containing products. Several years after the incident the GMO corn was still found in food products by the FDA, pointing a major problem preventing the combination of unsafe GMOs and the removal and isolation of those GMOs after they have entered into our foods.
