Hi I'm pregnant so I must be cautious about food safety and so I was wondering if cooking pork ribs for 5 hours in the oven at 200F will be safe enough to eat.

All the nasties should be killed at that temperature for that duration. Don't forget your folic acid!

All pork or foods made with pork must be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 155° F. Pork ordered "well done" should be cooked to at least 170° F.

Here's more information on food safety in the following

Thanks folks for both your replies... I just finished the ribs after 5 hours of being in the oven at 200F and they turned out perfect. Thanks again for all your help!!!
