A 155°F (68°C) for 17 seconds
explanation

Ground, chopped, or minced seafood should be cooked to 155°F for 17 seconds. Normally seafood only needs to be cooked to 145°F for 15 seconds, but if it's chopped, minced, or ground, it requires a higher temperature. Other foods that should be cooked to 155°F (68°C) for 17 seconds:
Ground meat—including beef, pork, and other meat
Injected meat—including brined ham and flavor-injected roasts
Mechanically tenderized meat
Ground meat from game animals commercially raised and inspected
Ratites (mostly flightless birds with flat breastbones)—including ostrich and emu
Ground seafood—including chopped or minced seafood
Shell eggs that will be hot held for service
