Alternative methods for measuring fridge temperature are:

  • Manual recording of temperature reading from a stem thermometer inside each fridge.
  • 30DTR devices mounted outside the fridge with an attached temperature probe that continuously monitors and records temperature inside the fridge for 30 days. The 30DTR display indicates if the fridge’s temperature has deviated from the acceptable range within the previous 29 days and a visual alarm is also activated when that deviation occurs.
