New Checklist a Great Addition to Your Swabbing Strategy

food safety

It’s enough to keep you up at night. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 6 Americans get sick from contaminated foods or beverages each year, and 3,000 die.

In addition, CDC reports that foodborne illnesses cost more than $15.6 billion each year, citing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

These sobering numbers are enough to make the most seasoned environmental monitoring professional ask two key questions:

  • Are we sure we’re following best practices for environmental monitoring?
  • Do we have access to the best tools to get the job done?

Now you can answer both questions with a resounding YES.

Puritan Medical Products has compiled a great new free resource, 4 Things to Know About Food Safety Zones: A Checklist.

The checklist includes:

  • A BREAKDOWN of the 4 Food Safety Zones recognized by both federal regulators and industry professionals.
  • A HANDY CHART that identifies WHERE to test most vigorously for WHICH pathogen.
  • A LINK TO THE BEST specimen collection and transport tools in the business.

Every step toward prevention is worth taking.
