Help! Meatloaf is still pink inside, defying all logic.

I bought a pre-made, raw meatloaf from the local grocery store. Tonight I cooked it, in a 375-degree oven for close to an hour and a half. The thing is still pink throughout!

Texture-wise, it is getting dry, but the colour still looks kinda raw to me. I'm willing to eat it, but I don't want to serve it to my pregnant wife if it won't be 100% safe. Why might it still be pink in the middle after all this time? Is it safe to eat? It isn't even that it is pink just in the middle; it is all the way through.
There is nothing in the meatloaf that should affect the colour in this way as far as I know. It's just ground beef, breadcrumbs, and some spinach.
