Using A Quality Digital Food Thermometer Could Help To Save Lives
How The Correct Use Of A Quality Digital Food Thermometer Can Help Reduce Food Borne Diseases And Keep Food Safe.
In the year 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that 1 in 6 Americans, or in other words, a huge 48 million people, get sick including 128,000 of those who are hospitalized and a massive 3,000 individuals who die; all of food borne illnesses.
The figure of 3,000 almost 'silent' deaths each year (see the CDC Newsroom) quietly and efficiently outranks even the greatest of disasters to strike the United States.
To estimate the number of food borne illnesses the CDC estimated illness caused by both 'known' and 'unspecified agents' and estimated the number of hospitalizations and deaths caused by the same.
It may not be surprising to know that Salmonella was the largest single contributor to deaths by food borne diseases.
However, it is claimed that by owning and using a digital food thermometer, many if not all, food borne diseases can be eliminated, as when used properly, a food thermometer helps the cook to know when the correct and safe temperature for cooking food has been reached, thus rendering it safe for consumption.
Darrell Mott of Freconn Inc, stated "Simple food thermometers can contribute greatly to increasing food safety, and this combined with the US Department of Agriculture (USAD) recommended temperatures for cooking food safely can help you to make an informed decision about when your food is ready for eating" He went on to say "How can you know your food is safe to eat, if you don't even know the temperature to which it's cooked? It's like trying to navigate without a map".
Probably the only way to protect yourself from food borne illnesses and actually avoiding overcooking your meat, is to use a good meat thermometer. In fact, most of the time when people claim to have a dose of stomach flu, it is normally always a food borne illness, and usually caused by bacteria, such as E-coli (Escheria-coli), Salmonella, Campylobacter jejuni, Listeria monocytogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. The chances are that if you think you have had a stomach 'bug' you have actually had a food borne illness that probably could have been prevented by proper cooking and indeed helped if you were in possession of a digital food thermometer to tell you when your food was at the 'right' temperature.
The US department of Agriculture (USDA) state: "The color of cooked meat and poultry is not always a sure sign of its degree of doneness. Only by using a good thermometer can one accurately determine that a meat has reached a safe temperature."
There are many types of digital food thermometers available, and it is necessary that an accurate instrument is chosen. Bimetal style dial thermometers, which are the type usually built into grills and smokers are nowhere near as accurate as the wireless digital food thermometers that Freconn Inc. recommend.
