CLEVELAND - July 16, 2019 - PRLog -- Prove Best Supply Chain Practices with T&D Data Loggers

FSMA (the Food Safety Modernization Act)—has already begun to be enforced for large pet food manufacturers in an effort to improve pet food safety. As part of the FDA's food safety mandate, FSMA requires that animal food processors produce electronic temperature documentation at every link of the cold chain.

Businesses are turning to a cost-effective way to ensure supply chain traceability. T&D temperature data loggers can help you to prove best practices in accordance with your written preventive controls plan, and to avoid recalls! These simple compliance solutions are easy to use, log temperature automatically, and are designed to operate in any industrial environment.

What Do You Need to Know About FSMA?

FSMA ( (signed into law in 2011) mandates that animal/pet food manufacturers prove and document the temperature of their perishable products. Regulators require complete electronic temperature documentation at every link in the supply chain. If you pack or store high-risk foods, FSMA calls for you to provide extra documentation of your perishable product.

More importantly, FSMA also allows the FDA to issue a mandatory recall of food products if necessary. This means that pet food manufacturers are now responsible for documenting product temperature, and for setting an alarm system to notify personnel of temperature excursions for better pet food safety.

At CAS DataLoggers, many of our Food & Beverage customers use T&D temperature data loggers to monitor their supply chains for regulatory compliance.

Wireless Temperature Data Loggers

It's easy to download recorded temperature data from the T&D RTR-501 Wireless Temperature Data Logger ( (aka Remote Unit) via wireless communication with a Base Unit. The wireless communication range between a Remote Unit and a Base Unit is about 500 ft. (150 meters). By registering an RTR-500 as a Repeater, it can be used to expand the wireless communication range.

Standalone WiFi/Bluetooth Models Available

Wireless systems with remote monitoring capability allow you to get immediate temperature alarms anytime, anywhere. The TR-71wb WiFi/Bluetooth Temperature Data Logger ( is a two-channel model with an external thermistor sensor, an LCD, and a measuring range of -40° to 230°F (-40° to 110°C). By using T&D's WebStorage Service, users can access stored data from their mobile devices anytime from the cloud!
