FSA expert committee rejects rare burger guidance
At a meeting of the FSA’s Advisory Committee on the Microbiological Safety of Food (ACMSF) members reiterated their advice that for a burger to be cooked safely it should be cooked for two minutes at 70C (or equivalent) to ensure the E. coli pathogen is killed off at the core of the burger.
However, in its advice issued in May the FSA stated that it was acceptable to serve burgers that are not thoroughly cooked if suitable pathogen reduction measures were introduced into the supply chain
