Food Safety


Perfect Sandwich 1

How do I prevent my family from getting sick from food?


Most common food poisonings result from eating foods that contain large numbers of harmful bacteria or bacteria-produced toxins.  Perishable foods must be kept either cold or hot. In order to prevent bacteria from growing in your food, keep hot foods hot - above 140°F- and cold foods cold - below 40°F. Perishable food should not be held in this temperature range for more than 2-3 hours --including preparation time.

The recommendations for keeping lunches cold are particularly important when the lunch contains a sandwich with eggs, roast beef, turkey, fish, poultry or other cooked meats, because these are quite perishable.  Reusable ice packs or insulated lunch carriers do help to keep your sandwich cold. Our PerfectCHILL® cooling technology is a lab tested solution that keeps the perishable contents of your sandwich at optimally cool temperatures until you are ready to eat.  




Our PerfectCHILL® cooling technology has been proven to keep the contents of your sandwich cool within the USDA guidelines of 40° F for approximately 5 hours.  After which room temperature is not reached for almost 8 hours. The closest leading insulated container only held the safe food temperature for 1 hour!   Using Perfect Sandwich, you will be worry-free about food borne illnesses that can result from improper storage.  You can enjoy a sandwich, prepared hours earlier, that is as fresh, cold and crisp as the moment it was made.

The US Government Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than 200 known diseases are transmitted through food. The causes of foodborne illness include viruses, bacteria, parasites, toxins, metals, and prions, and the symptoms of foodborne illness range from mild gastroenteritis to life-threatening neurologic, hepatic, and renal syndromes. In the United States, foodborne diseases cause up to 9,000 deaths each year. 

Most common food poisonings results from eating foods that contain large numbers of harmful bacteria or bacteria-produced toxins.  Perishable foods must be kept either cold or hot.  This is because bacteria grow most rapidly at temperatures between 40-140 degrees F. Perishable food should not be held in this temperature range for more than 2-3 hours--including preparation time.

The recommendations for keeping lunches cold are particularly important when the lunch contains a sandwich containing eggs, roast beef, turkey, or other cooked meats, fish, or poultry, because these are quite perishable.  Reusable ice packs or insulated lunch carriers work well to keep your sandwich cold.
