Data Loggers for Meat & Poultry Processes

Data Loggers

Meat and Poultry Processing

MadgeTech data loggers can be used to measure and record the temperature and humidity of meat products during cooking, cooling, shipping and storage. Available in both standalone and wireless models, these durable devices provide an ideal solution for validating meat processes. The wireless series streamlines data collection by measuring, recording and wirelessly transmitting readings back to a central computer for real time monitoring. If the data received is out of a safe range, the system can be configured to send an email, text message or screen alarm. MadgeTech's meat data loggers provide an easy and efficient way to collect data, and assist users in complying with USDA regulations.

MadgeTech data loggers for meat products are suitable for meat cooking validation, meat cooling validation and smokehouse validation. Find in our collection humidity and temperature data loggers, oven data loggers and beef jerky data loggers. Many of these data loggers are ideal for oven temperature mapping, internal meat temperature monitoring, come with easy to use software and are available at an affordable price.

In a major victory for American poultry producers, South Korea has officially agreed to reopen its market to fresh and frozen poultry from the United States. The Korean government, based in Seoul, initially quarantined American poultry products at the beginning of 2015 due to food safety concerns. Being regulated out of the South Korean market took its toll on American poultry manufacturers, as a $122.3 million export business in 2014 shrunk to $21.7 million in 2015, a striking 82% decline. However, with the issue resolved, any poultry processed in the U.S. after June 1 of this year is eligible for export to South Korea.

Seoul clipped the wings of the American poultry industry due to a series of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI, commonly known as "bird flu") outbreaks across the American Midwest. The quarantine was originally scheduled to end in January of 2016, but another HPAI outbreak in Indiana over the winter convinced the South Korean government to extend the ban. The USDA negotiated with the South Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety for months, eventually satisfying its Korean counterpart with assurances that poultry from outbreak-affected regions would never enter the market.

MadgeTech is headed to Omaha, Nebraska July 21-23 for the 77th American Convention of Meat Processors & Suppliers' Exhibition at the CenturyLink Center! The convention, organized by the American Association of Meat Processors (AAMP), provides small meat or poultry producers and other food businesses with opportunities to partake in educational sessions, networking and view demonstrations of the latest products, including a showcase of MadgeTech's cloud-ready data loggers.

Convention goers will be able to see a variety of MadgeTech's wireless data logging devices and systems, specifically designed for meat processing applications. MadgeTech wireless data loggers measure and record the temperature of meat products throughout multiple phases of processing and transportation. This is critical to ensure a high-quality product and verify compliance with HACCP regulations.

A scientist from the University of Nevada, Reno is finding ways to make meat safer by feeding the bacteria that can infect it to their natural predators. Using bacteriophages, viruses that target bacteria but are harmless to humans, Dr. Amilton de Mello has been able to reduce the presence of salmonella in ground poultry, beef, and pork up to 90 percent, scoring a tremendous victory for food safety in the meat processing business.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, Salmonella makes over a million Americans sick each year, leading to 19,000 hospitalizations and 380 deaths. Infants, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are most likely to become sick from the bacterial infection, which is generally transmitted to humans through tainted food, particularly meat, poultry, eggs, and unpasteurized dairy products. Since 2014 alone, the CDC has declared 23 separate multistate salmonella outbreaks in the United States.

Due to the high standards of the USDA, American meat and poultry producers have numerous concerns beyond simply creating a tasty product. Food safety laws require near-constant meat temperature monitoring to ensure that the end product is safe for consumers as well.

For processed meats, this means that warehouse monitoring, smokehouse monitoring, and cooler monitoring are all necessary to maintain a compliant HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) system. MadgeTech meat data loggers, in conjunction with MadgeTech 4 software's cooling flag capabilities, are the perfect solution to make sense of these complex requirements.
