Since heat conducts along this thermometer faster than through the food, take the tem- perature in two to three areas to verify the food temperature. When inserting into food, let the thermometer come to tempera- ture at least one minute before reading it. You can also use disposable (single-use) temperature indica- tors to" check the internal tem- perature of foods. Disposable temperature indicators are de- signed for specific ranges such as 160 to 170 E Thus, you should use these sensors only with foods that should reach an internal temperature within the range. Remember, ground beef, 160 F; roast or steak, 145 F; and poultry, at least 160 E These single-use sensors can't be inserted into food while it is cooking. Instead, insert a sensor into food toward the end of the estimated cooking time. It will change color when food reaches the proper temperature range. Pop-up temperature devices often are used for turkeys and roasting chickens. These devices are manufactured to pop up "when the food reaches the final temperature for safety and done- ness. If accurately placed in food, these timers are reliable within one to two degrees. However, it's recommended to check other parts of the food with a conv, entional food ther- mometer.

Farming accidents reduced with a simple precaution Countless farmers and land- scapers have lost fingers and arms using farm and landscap- ing machinery, Injuries are com- mon when operating machines like corn pickers and mulchers, because workers may be tempt- ed to reach in and try to quickly remove items that have become stuck while the machine is still on; other times, clothing or dan- gling possessions are caught by accident, An innovation, called the L.T. Safety Devicet offers users a safety device when using corn pickers, mulchers or simi- lar machinery. It protects users' fingers and limbs from acciden- tally getting caught and severed while the machine is operating. The user must always be a safe distance away in order to engage the machine, using the L.T.

When cooking food, don't depend on color and texture to indicate doneness. Recent research has revealed that these two factors are unreliable indi- cators of when foods are suffi- ciently cooked to kill pathogens. For instance, ground beef may turn brown before reaching an internal temperature *that kills pathogens. A hamburger cooked to 160F is safe, regardless of its color. A roast or steak reaching an internal temperature of 145 F is safe to eat. For safety, poul- try should reach at least 160 F throughout. You should also use a food thermometer to ensure that foods remain at a safe tem- perature., of, 40 .F, ,or below, or 140 F or above. Digital arid dial are two gen- eral types of food thermometers. Thermocouple and thermistor are digital thermometers. A ther- mocouple can measure and dis- play the final temperature the most rapidly, allowing you to quickly check the internal tem- perature in several places to ensure that food is thoroughly cooked. This feature is useful for large items such as turkeys or roasts, when it's advisable to check the temperature in more than one place. The thermocouple and ther- mistor can effectively measure the internal temperature of both thin and thick foods. These digi- tal thermometers aren't designed to remain in food while it's cooking. Instead, use them to check final temperatures near the estimated cooking time. To prevent over-cooking, check temperatures before food is expected to finish cooking. The oven-safe bimetallic-coil is a dial food thermometer. It remains in the food while it's cooking and constantly shows the internal temperature and generally is used for large items such as a turkey or roast. It can accurately measure the tempera- ture of relatively thick foods safetyl providing a valuable safeguard of all body parts when operating potentially dangerous machinery, The inventors, Chris Len- hardt and Danny Moses II, from Keavy, Kentucky, began devel- oping the L.T. Safety Device in 1999, The men have seen a lot of their friends hurt, and know of many other Instances where people have been injured by the products their invention is designed for. They know that many of these could be prevent- ed if people use this precaution, This original idea is now being made available for licens- ing to manufacturers interested in new product development, especially in the agricultural equipment safety products in- dustry. Mr. Lenhardt and Mr. Moses is hoping to have the L.T. Safety Device in full production and available to the public with- in the very near future. Tell 'em you saw it here!
