Smart sensor label.

Nearly one in four Americans suffers from food poisoning every year, with 76 million cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control. Of these, 325,000 people are hospitalized and 5,000 die.

Food Quality Sensor International, Inc. (FQSI) has developed a revolutionary new smart sensor label that senses spoilage in fresh meat and poultry products. SensorQ[TM] is applied by the meat packer, distributor, or grocer to the inside wrap of uncooked meat and poultry packages and detects food-borne bacteriological levels right inside the package. When the inside of the quality "Q" on the label is tangerine orange, the product is fresh. When the bacteria count in the package builds to a critical level, the orange turns to tan to indicate spoilage.

SensorQ[TM] was introduced at the 2007 Worldwide Food Expo in Chicago, October 24-27.

FQSI is in discussions with Superior Farms, the largest lamb processor in the United States, to test market the label on packages of lamb prior to the SensorQ[TM] national rollout.

SensorQ can be ordered by calling 781-862-3710. E-mail:
