Cook your burgers

The US Food Safety and Inspection Service recommends cooking burgers to an internal temperature of at least 71.1 °C (160 °F).
See the FSIS website for more information on how to store and cook ground beef safely

One of the bactieria commonly associated with food poisoning from undercooked hamburgers and other ground beef-products is Enterohemorrhagic E. coli, which can cause something called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome which in turn can cause kidney failure and even death.
