  1. Does the 4-140 rule apply to any whole meat muscle or just pork (and maybe poultry)?
  2. [​IMG]  I have no clue as to what you are asking???

    40-140 degrees is the "danger zone" and applies to all cooked or refrigerated foods. Do some searching around the forum and I am sure you will find some in depth discussions. The links to the USDA website on the food safety forum are also pretty good. I have had some food safety debates with my wife recently and was able to find the info from the USDA site.
