Food temperatures can change significantly when exposed to elevated ambient air. The above preparation table is monitored by zetoAmerica, shows food temperatures are well under control until a cover door is opened. Food temperature raises above 5 deg C (40 deg F) for many hours until the working doors are closed.
Food temperatures are impacted by ambient room temperatures of the summer. A 2 deg C rise in ambient air temperature elevates food temperatures and prolongs food exposure.
Active monitoring of refrigerated food cases can help ensure proper temperature control for food safety. Cold holding temperatures are one of the most common health department failures. Protect your customers by seeing in real time how store refrigeration is working.
