    Cook your food until it has maintained an internal temperature of 165°F for at least one minute.

    Problem solved.

      You don’t understand.

      The point is that carbapenem resistance is spreading across all bacteria (the prokaryote kingdom) globally.

      And, btw, some bacteria react to heat by forming spores (impervious to heat); others can survive heating up to 300C.

      165F for 60 seconds won’t cut it for these.
