Food related illness is alarmingly high with an estimated 1 million people in the UK becoming infected each year. The symptoms are not only unpleasant, they include vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and fever; they also cost an estimated £1.5 billion a year in lost working days and medical care. Most food related illness is preventable.
A solid HACCP routine, that consists of frequent and accurate temperature measurements, is an essential part of controlling the outbreak of harmful microbes that cause food borne diseases.
Thermometers are an integral part of any food safety plan, but they can often be a direct cause of bacterial cross-contamination. Checking the temperature of food items without cleaning the probe between readings can, and often does, lead to microbial transfer from contaminated items to those that are thought to be safe.
A simple, efficient and cost effective way to combat this type of cross-contamination is the use of probe wipes between temperature measurements. Designed specifically for food thermometers, probe wipes are pre-saturated with an effective cleaning solution specifically designed to rid the probe of harmful bio-contaminants.
Wiping the thermometer probe clean before and after each measurement will significantly reduce the risk of cross-contamination. ETI probe wipes contain odourless cleaning agents that dry quickly and won't taint the food it's being used to protect.
Cleaning the thermometer's probe between each is essential in establishing food handling best practice and helps ensure food safety. Probe wipes are a small investment that can protect your business, customers or family from the ever present hazards associated with food related sickness and cross-contamination.
