The new recommendation is 145 degrees internal temperature. It used to be 160.
According to the NY times:
<That could be pork’s new slogan after the United States Department of Agriculture on Tuesday said it was lowering its safe cooking temperature to 145 degrees, from the longtime standard of 160. The new recommendation is in line with what many cookbook authors and chefs have been saying for years. >
According to the USDA website:
<For safety, the USDA recommends cooking ground pork patties and ground pork mixtures such as meat loaf to 160 °F. Cook all raw pork steaks, chops, and roasts to a minimum internal temperature of 145 °F as measured with a food thermometer before removing meat from the heat source. For safety and quality, allow meat to rest for at least three minutes before carving or consuming. For reasons of personal preference, consumers may choose to cook meat to higher temperatures.>Source(s): http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/25/dining/porks-saf... http://www.fsis.usda.gov/factsheets/Pork_From_Farm...

I would cook it until 160 f from the middle and the centre of the loin. Do not let the thermometer touch the bottom or you will get an inaccurate reading. The meat keeps cooking after it has been taken out of the oven so if you cook it too long it will dry out. Rest for 10 min and the meat will be very juicy. It will be hot still but you could cover it with foil if you desire.
