UK wireless meats can now be bought online using a simple and inexpensive device.
The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) said the devices, called wireless meat and meat thermometers, were available for purchase from suppliers.
The FSA said they could be used to check the meat quality, the type of meat, and the number of meat pieces available.
The thermometers were developed by the manufacturer as a way to monitor and report on meat quality.
They are not available to buy at retail and are only available through suppliers who are registered with the FSA.
There is no fee to use the device, which costs £2.50 to £3.50 for a package containing 12 pieces of meat.
There are no requirements to buy the devices from a retailer or online.
A spokesman for the FSA said the agency had been working with retailers and other companies to ensure the devices were widely available.
“FSA has a long-standing relationship with the meat and poultry industry, and has taken an active role in helping them to provide high-quality meat and animal products, including meat thermometry,” the spokesman said.
“We are pleased that this is the case and look forward to seeing the products being widely used in supermarkets across the UK.”
