(SanDiego.CityRegions.Com, January 08, 2015 ) San Diego, California -- Puna Inc., a leading manufacturer of assorted consumer products, has today come out in support of a recent announcement by the United States Department of Agriculture that recommends the use of Puna Digital Meat Thermometer at home. According to the announcement that was first published on FoodSafety.gov website, there are three main reasons why consumers need to adopt the use of Puna Digital Meat Thermometer when preparing food:
1. One cannot tell when food is effectively cooked simply by looking at it.
2. Checking the temperature of the food prevents overcooking and preserves the food flavour.
3. Using a digital meat thermometer minimizes the risk of food borne diseases.
When making the announcement USDA noted that many consumers depend on the color of food to tell whether food is cooked. USDA however maintains that the color of food is not enough to tell whether food is optimally cooked.
"Studies show that one out of every four hamburgers turn brownish before it has reached a safe temperature," said Tina Hanes, an official in the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Puna Digital Meat Thermometer are available in various types and with varying directions for use. The most common type is the digital food thermometer which can read the temperature of cooking food in less than 10 seconds.
The move by the USDA to sensitize consumers on the use of food thermometers is a move in the right direction. For a long time, Puna Inc. has been carrying out awareness campaigns on the same issues. The company organized one such awareness campaign last month when it organized barbeque parties across Florida and demonstrated the effective use of food thermometers in barbecuing.
"The USDA's support for the use of Puna Digital Meat Thermometer will have a big impact on the way consumers perceive the food thermometers," said Puna's managing director, Mr. Bruno Puna.
In support for the announcement, Puna Inc. has decided to give all its Amazon consumers a limited time discount on the purchase of their digital thermometer. The company has lowered the price of the digital food thermometer from $59.39 to $14.99. This is a price reduction of 75%, which the company expects will be incentive enough to encourage more consumers to start using Puna Digital Meat Thermometer.
