In order to prevent illness, meats should be _____________.

Answer cooked until they are well done.

Well done meat is cooked all the way through to make sure potential disease-causing bacteria have been killed (sorry rare meat eaters). However, the best thing to do is not to rely on appearance but to cook the red meat to an internal temperature of 140F - 165F (depending on the type of red meat).
