DeltaTrak, a provider of cold chain management, environmental monitoring, and food safety solutions, announces the release of its new FlashLink Mini Electronic Time-Temperature Indicator (TTI).
Seafood shippers and receivers need to properly monitor the temperature of fresh, refrigerated, and vacuum-packed products during transport and storage to ensure they have not been exposed to temperature abuse that could cause serious foodborne illness.
The FlashLink Mini Electronic TTI is a single-use device that monitors seafood products, helping companies meet FDA guidelines as set forth in the Fish and Fishery Products Hazards and Controls Guidance, as well as FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) requirements. It has a pre-configured threshold of 41˚ F/5° C and is set to trigger an alarm if accumulative temperature abuse occurs above this threshold for four hours or more. An immediate pass or fail indication from a flashing green or red LED provides confidence for receivers to make immediate accept or reject decisions on the dock.
DeltaTrak offers free post-trip analysis service to review trip history and pinpoint when out-of-range conditions happened. This information can be used to settle claim situations by verifying who is responsible based on the time it occurred.
TTI indicators are mounted on a high-visibility green shipping card with adhesive strips, so it can be attached to the outside of a carton, making it easy to locate when a load arrives.
Supplier, processors and receivers will protect the quality and integrity of their products using the TTI, and avoid exposure to the consequences of potentially unsafe seafood.
