New regulations and stricter policies ushered in by the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act** will hold restaurants more responsible than ever. While it has worked in the past, pen and paper collection is unreliable and time consuming and will not be able to keep up with the new policies. Storing temperature data digitally saves money and provides automated HACCP compliance reporting. New regulatory fines can be expensive and apply to all food handlers, big or small.
