A student is sitting in class, and their stomach is beginning to rumble. Finally, the bell rings, and it is time for lunch. However, due to a recent refrigerator malfunction, all of the prepared food for the day has become spoiled.
School meals are crucial to students, just ask any teacher. Children who are hungry have a difficult time focusing in school, which ultimately affects their learning experience. Our schools develop the future of our children, which is why we also depend on them for providing our children with meals. What happens if a school is unable to serve a nutritious meal, or makes children sick from food that has spoiled from improper storage temperatures?
How to determine if frozen food is safe after increased temperatures
In San Diego, California 22 elementary students became ill and suffered from abdominal pains and became nauseous after eating lunch from the school cafeteria. The children had to be transported to a local hospital just as a precaution. After an investigation, it is believed that the children became sick from spoiled milk.
The Monnit Solution
With Monnit Wireless Sensors, school cafeterias are now able to prevent and identify inadequate temperatures within their freezers, refrigerators or other temperature sensitive storage units. If temperatures go above or below the proper storage level, it increases the chances of dangerous bacterial growth which can cause food-borne illnesses.
Monnit Wireless Sensors enables you and your staff to monitor and track temperature changes in your walk-in cooler, freezers, or warmers. Previously, available solutions for monitoring food temperatures 24/7 were expensive and difficult to use. This has since changed with Monnit’s affordable remote monitoring solutions, which make it easy to monitor multiple aspects of your food storage from anywhere, at any time.
Monnit Wireless Sensors can also collect data and warn companies when refrigeration units are beginning to malfunction. The system can send alerts to a supervisor’s mobile device or through a local alert system, allowing them to address and correct the issue before there is any harm to perishable foods. By using Monnit Wireless Sensors schools can not only improve food quality and reduce the chances of food-borne illnesses, but they can reduce the amount of food wasted from spoilage.
