HACCP-Based SOPs 1 Using and Calibrating Thermometers (Sample SOP) PURPOSE: To prevent foodborne illness by ensuring that the appropriate type of thermometer is used to measure internal product temperatures and that thermometers used are correctly calibrated for accuracy.
1 2009 Introduction Food temperatures must be checked throughout the food preparation process, and the thermometers used must be accurate. Child nutrition employees are res ponsiblefor checking the accuracy of the rmom et ers and calibrating them if they are not accurate.
Calibrating Thermometers Calibrating a thermometer is actually a very simple process. It may be necessary to do from time to time to ensure accuracy.

Calibrating Thermometers Authors: Dave Ayres and Anne Blundell A thermometer without a traceable calibration route to recognised National Standards is fairly useless.
When calibrating thermometers using the ice-point method, the final reading of the thermometer should be 45˚F (7˚C). SHORT ANSWER Explain the steps for calibrating a thermometer using the ice-point method.
Using and calibrating hose-end sprayers Hose-end sprayers attach to the end of a garden hose and use the suction created by the flow of water to mix the chemical into the spray pattern.
