Anyone who has ever experienced food poisoning can tell you that mishandling of food doesn’t have a pleasant result. If you operate a grocery store, restaurant, or other business that offers food items, you have to understand food safety temperatures and know when your best course of action is to discard food rather than serve it. The only way to be confident you are protecting your customers from foodborne illnesses is to use a temperature monitor that records ongoing temperatures and alerts you when the temperature falls into the danger zone.
A temperature monitor should be used in all refrigeration and freezer cases, as well as on buffets, salad bars, and other food storage cases. If you do not have an alarm system on your cases, you should have a schedule to check the temperature monitor every two hours or on whatever frequency your local health inspectors recommend.
If you would like information about a temperature monitor for your restaurant, grocery store, or catering business, give us a call at Global Sensors.
