Technology is now key to food safety
Although the food industry has created hazard analysis and critical control points in order to combat food borne diseases, 48 million Americans still get food poisoning every year, with 3,000 of those dying from this easily preventable problem.
The HACCP processes ensure both the thorough cooking of food, and the storage of food at the correct temperature in order to prevent pathogens from getting into the food. However, whilst these processes are clearly necessary and should prevent poisoning, food services have had difficulties in complying with them. Kitchen staff are often inadequately trained to keep track of their HACCP compliance, misreading temperatures or simply being too busy to take a reading can force staff to guess the temperature, which in turn can be used against your company if anyone were to fall ill.
Whilst these risks used to be commonplace, technology can now offer a stress free solution to the problem. Comprehensive data logging and alarm systems monitor and record data about your food and storage temperature 24/7. This data can be accessed from anywhere in the world on any internet enabled device, removing the need for manual entry and the possibility for error. Further to this, if temperature readings drop below or rise above guidelines that you have established, you will be immediately notified, ensuring that you can take action instantaneously. This can prevent a large amount of waste, as you can catch the problem before your whole refrigerator or freezer becomes affected.
Ensure that issues over temperature don’t affect the quality of your stored chilled or frozen storage material.
Abacus Guardian wireless temperature monitoring allows you to remotely monitor the temperature of any room, cabinet or storage area. If the temperature drops or rises beyond the parameters that you have set you will automatically be alerted.
