Most Australians, at one time or another, unfortunately find themselves a victim of food poisoning. In fact, the NSW Department of Primary Industries Food Authority notes that over four million of us are affected every year.
There's no argument that the issue is common, but with a little more care in the food production, transportation and storage sectors, these statistics could be reduced. In all three of these areas, temperature data loggers can help organisations keep closer control over the safety of food, meaning a lower chance of contamination and illness.
Optimising the environment for food safety
Ensuring your fresh produce is safe for consumption starts with temperature. The Food Safety Information Council has defined the "temperature danger zone" as anywhere between 5°C and 60°C, noting that any food left in between this range for more than two hours is potentially at risk.
Temperature data loggers can help organisations keep closer control over the safety of food.
Obviously, the danger zone rule should apply for anyone with food in their home, but for businesses involved in food transportation or storage, keeping a close watch on the thermometer is critical. The testo Saveris 2 has been designed with these industries in mind, collecting data through wireless probes that are installed across the storage location or vehicle, and alerting users immediately when temperature or humidity levels go outside of defined limits.
