Restaurants in North Carolina can now legally serve rare burgers thanks to recent changes in the state’s health code. Apparently restaurants will just have to inform their customers on the menu that eating raw or rare meat may be harmful.
Safe to say I don’t think anyone will be missing the old regulation which stated that ground beef had to be cooked to a temperature of 155 Fahrenheit. Counterintuitive to this safety measure was the fact that beef tartar was perfectly fine to serve. Go figure.
