The purpose of this study was to develop a thermal inspection system on a full scale meat and poultry product line. The system must withstand the production and sanitation environments and adapt to the many different products and conditions present on a common product line. By using this device, food processors will be able to measure the internal temperature of the product during its entire cooking process. This will provide certainty to food processors if the product reached the required internal temperature by USDA standards as well as proof of their processes.
