Food Safety - a Top Priority Among Grocery Retailers

While it is essential that meat displays be easily visible to shoppers, most common fluorescent bulbs not only bathe meat products in an unflattering light, the radiation they emit damages valuable meat products. In addition, to posing a health risk and necessitating early disposal, discounted or discarded merchadise cost retailers thousands of dollars annually.

Meat products affected by Infared, Ultraviolet, and visible spectrum wavelengths pose a significantly higher food safety risk as harmful bacterias and pathogens exponentially grow in numbers.

The exposure to light is more damaging that just some discoloration of the meat, it can lead to serious ailments caused by pathogens such as Listeria and Salmonella. A rise in surface temperature by just a few degrees can mean the difference between a saleable product and a food safety risk.

Food Safety Tools - Steps taken at the Store Level

Bacteria growth occurs at the microscopic level so it is very hard for retailers and department managers to identify a problem in their cases. Thankfully, there are many tools on the market that stores use to reduce food safety risks.

Temperature guns allow the department managers to take temperature readings although they only work if they are consistently used. Safe food handling practices are a must for every point of the process of bringing perishable foods to market. For grocery and fresh food retailers low radiation lighting is just one additional component that can be used at the store level to improve merchandising and food safety.
