    Yes, heat can effectively kill Salmonella bacteria. Salmonella bacteria are sensitive to high temperatures, and cooking food to the proper temperature can destroy them. The recommended minimum internal temperature for cooking most foods, including poultry, ground meats, and eggs, is 165°F (74°C). At this temperature, Salmonella bacteria are killed, making the food safe to eat. It’s important to ensure that food is cooked thoroughly and evenly to ensure complete destruction of any Salmonella present. Additionally, reheating leftover foods to the same temperature can help kill any potential bacteria that may have multiplied during storage.
