    Yup, 165° and it's fairly important as you're dealing with ground meat.

    Straight from the horses mouth:

    What Cooking Temperatures Didn’t Change?
    Ground Meats: This change does not apply to ground meats, including beef, veal, lamb, and pork, which should be cooked to 160 ºF and do not require a rest time.
    Poultry: The safe cooking temperature for all poultry products, including ground chicken and turkey, stays the same at 165 ºF.

    Whoops, good catch Case. Had it in my head that all ground meat was 165°, but that's just ground poultry.
