Change food safety standards to reduce the risk of food poisoning.

The CDC estimates each year 48 million people get ill, 128,000 get hospitalized, and 5,000 die in the US from food poisoning.
I worked as a Food Service Manager for the NY Board of Education and Beth Israel Hospital for a combined 15 years and every day I observed cooks under my supervision potentially contaminate their pocket thermometers by forgetting to sanitize the probe before inserting it back into the case. This unfortunate reality was disturbing to me since it jeopardized the lives of patients and children - people with weak immune systems.
Therefore, I invented a food safety device that offers a never-before-seen way to reduce illnesses due to cross-contamination.
This patented thermometer case is the very first thermometer case that opens up for easy cleaning and sanitizing. While thermometer cases are used in every kitchen, other thermometer cases do not open, creating a buildup of food particles that can capture and grow dangerous bacteria. In this situation, people can become tainted with potentially deadly bacteria that travels from the thermometer to their food.
The name ‘CAREmometer’ was easy to come up with - we truly CARE about this industry and its consumers. We strongly believe that the simple solution that CAREmometer offers should be a mandatory requirement for every kitchen in the US.
We hope to set new, higher food safety standards to reduce illness and potentially save lives!
Please sign our petition asking The United States Department of Health and Human Services to change the food safety regulations to make the CAREmometer mandatory so you and your loved ones will be protected from getting sick.
