    Be careful handling meat was wash surfaces and your hands well. Bacteria die when exposed to high heat.

      heat.  However some of them, including some very nasty ones, require both high heat and high pressure plus steam.  As in being thoroughly saturated with 250 degree steam for 20 minutes.  Merely heating it to 165 or so won't help with those as not only is it not hot enough but it is a dry heat.

        And before anyone tells me there is antibiotics in milk and eggs, remember, I'm Canadian and we don't put that crap in our farm animals.
