A Smart Way to Better Protect Your Store and Your Consumers
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that foodborne pathogens cause 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths each year. In addition to the human impact, foodborne illnesses cost the global economy billions of dollars a year.
One source of foodborne bacteria is retail packages of raw beef, poultry and seafood, which may contain harmful bacteria such as Salmonella, E. Coli 0157:H7 and Listeria monocytogenes. Cross contamination of foodborne pathogens can easily occur in grocery meat departments, check-out aisles, on shopping carts, and in consumers' homes.
UltraZapSafePak is an active absorbent food safety pad designed to maintain the safety and appearance of packaged meat, poultry and seafood. UltraZapSafePak minimizes the bacterial growth in packaged meat, poultry and seafood, thus maintaining the product's safety even as the protein ages inside the package.
UltraZapSafePak active food safety pads include an anti-microbial ingredient that reduces the bacterial growth inside the cellulose pad and in the purge. A reduction of bacterial growth in the purge allows the packaged protein to remain safer and more odor-free when compared to standard industry packages.
