From the Test Kitchen
TEST KITCHEN TIP:

The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A poultry patty cooked to 165 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty into the center of the patty.
