Is it safe to eat pork when its pink?

Without a doubt! Pork is safe to eat with a blush of pink in the center. In fact, we’d bet that you will enjoy it more when cooked to medium degree of doneness. Properly cooked pork is cooked to 145 degrees, removed from heat and allowed to rest for three minutes before slicing. Pork today is very lean and shouldn’t be overcooked. The best test of doneness is to use a good quality thermometer to check the internal temperature of your pork.
