Eindhoven, The Netherlands: Fluke has introduced The FoodPro and FoodPro Plus infrared thermometers, which are designed to enable foodservice professionals to quickly and accurately gauge food product temperatures and to help detect potential food safety problems. For quick and easy temperature surveillance of foodservice environments, foodservice staff members can use the Fluke FoodPro, a non-contact thermometer that includes target illumination, a “Go/No-Go” temperature zone indicator and IP54 sealing. When both internal and external temperature checks are needed, the FoodPro Plus infrared thermometer offers two measurement options designed for safety, accuracy and convenience. Foodservice professionals can use the non-contact measurement mode to quickly scan hot or cold holding foods and view surface temperature readings instantly on a large backlit LCD screen, or extend and insert the contact probe stored on the device to get a high-accuracy internal temperature measurement. Both the FoodPro Plus and the FoodPro thermometers incorporate temperature safety limits from Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) for food temperature monitoring. Due to tighter inspection requirements in many countries, HACCP programs are becoming routine for institutional and large chain operators as part of an effort to reduce the risk of food-borne illnesses.
