nano structured self-cleaning clothing

Self-Cleaning Clothing Sees the Sunlight

SELF-CLEANING CLOTHING SEES THE SUNLIGHT

HOW LONG BEFORE LAUNDRY BECOMES A THING OF THE PAST?

Laundry haters, rejoice! The future is here. Self-cleaning clothing has officially been created.

Dr. Rajesh Ramanathan from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia led a process development team in their quest to make self-cleaning clothing a reality outside of science lab. Their research has discovered how to grow nanostructures directly onto wearable textiles, which harnesses sunlight to degrade organic matter. When the team exposed the resulting substance to sunlight, the nano-enhanced cloth took less than six minutes to clean itself.

What is Nanostructured Clothing?

The material can be grown in less than 30 minutes, and is reproducible on an industrial level in industries ranging from pharmaceuticals to housing. Textiles are one of the easiest applications to start with, because their 3D structure makes it easy for them to absorb light. This speeds up the process of degrading organic matter.

When the material is set outside in the sun, the self-cleaning function is activated within the nanostructures. These fibers, invisible to the naked eye, receive a burst of energy to create ‘hot electrons,’ which burns away stains from food, spills, and other dirt and grime.

While self-cleaning clothing won’t appear in stores until more testing has been completed, researchers are already moving on to trials against more organic compounds and “devastating” stains like red wine. In time, there’s no telling how this efficiently-designed “smart clothing” could change consumer chore list or even entire businesses like garment rental companies. We’ll be tracking this development with interest!

This research was published March 23, 2016 by Samuel R. Anderson in the Journal of Advanced Materials Interfaces.

If you would like to learn more about uniform tracking and see how Paragon helped the largest uniform rental company in the world manage and share their inventory, give us a call or send us an email. Whether you’re a hospital, a caterer, or an international garment rental company, our programs can be custom-fit to manage your entire warehouse, track washes and returns, and so much more.

map of chipotle outbreaks and food illness spread

Food Illness Continues to Rampage Across Chipotle Locations

FOOD ILLNESS CONTINUES TO RAMPAGE ACROSS CHIPOTLE LOCATIONS

CHIPOTLE’S WORKERS FALL ILL

A Chipotle store in Billerica, Massachusetts has voluntarily closed its doors in response to several of its employees succumbing to food illness from the norovirus. As of today, four employees have fallen sick.

Billerica Director of the Board of Health Richard Berube, confirmed that at least one of the sick employees have norovirus, with two more possible cases likely. Norovirus symptoms include pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and a low-grade fever. Signs of infection typically manifest about 24 to 48 hours after consuming contaminated food or being exposed to an infected carrier. If you or a loved one has the virus, it’s important to practice meticulous hygiene for an additional three days after recovery to prevent reinfection, as the virus finishes shedding in the feces. Interestingly, while norovirus can infect the same person more than once, victims of the virus will experience a temporary immunity of about 14 weeks after they’ve recovered from their infection. If you have types B or AB blood, you also have a slight built-in protection against weaker strains of norovirus.

Company spokesperson Chris Arnold said that no customer illnesses have been reported, and any employee feeling ill will be allowed to take leave until fully recovered.

Current Outbreak Status

Chipotle is still struggling with brand damage fallout from a series of past norovirus and E. coli outbreaks. Stock in the Mexican grill chain is down 20% during the last 12 months, and fell more than 5% early Wednesday morning.

However, Chipotle’s executives are feeling positive. Stock is actually expected to rise by the end of this year, in part thanks to the brand’s swift and uncompromising reaction to any reported illnesses. Store management has taken precautionary steps to keep customers from contracting the virus, such as discarding all food that may have been contaminated and bringing in fresh stock, and have thoroughly cleaned the store while closed. Inspectors have visited the store and found everything in good shape. Before employees can come back to work, they must pass a stool sample and symptoms test to ensure they won’t be passing the illness onto anyone they serve. Chipotle expects to reopen the location today.

chipotle food safety and illnesses are a concern for consumers

Chipotle Closes Doors to Save Brand and Promote Food Safety

CHIPOTLE CLOSES FOR FOOD SAFETY CONCERNS

IS IT ENOUGH? CAN THEIR BRAND BE SAVED?

Food safety concerns abound in the social media stratosphere. Burrito fans across America will have to go without their favorite food fix today. Chipotle is facilitating a nationwide shut-down to hold an all-staff meeting about food safety. The restaurant’s doors will remain closed until 3 p.m. local time.

Training will take place at their headquarters in Denver and will be broadcast to all other locations. The meeting will cover topics like more stringent food preparation protocols, DNA-testing of ingredients, and paid sick leave to prevent the spread of disease, in an effort to address and eliminate the recent blowback from multiple foodborne illnesses.

While these measures are admirable, it might be too-little-too-late for the popular Tex-Mex chain. Chipotle has been living a nightmare that no restaurant ever wants to face: contaminated foods, and much worse, a continued difficulty in ferreting out the cause of the contamination. Part of Chipotle’s business model is sourcing local foods, which allows them to serve better tasting, fresher produce and meats. Unfortunately, this presents major issues when it comes to pinning down sources of bacteria, which in turn garners public disapproval. In many areas, the once infamously out-the-door lines are now relative ghost towns. Customers are having trouble trusting that the company has their best interests at heart.

Why has this been such a huge problem for Chipotle?

It’s a fact that food safety snafus aren’t isolated to Chipotle; in fact, the CDC states that the number of fast food outbreaks has increased across the board in recent years. Still, with no less than three separate outbreaks in just two months’ time, it would appear that Chipotle’s problems are more than a string of bad luck. Supply chain recordkeeping inefficiencies are allowing any foodborne illnesses they may have to escape, largely unchecked, into a much greater portion of the population.

While the CDC reports that Chipotle has been compliant with all illness investigations, they are still having a lot of difficulty figuring out which ingredients were delivered to which stores at which times.

Ian Williams, who oversees the CDC’s outbreak response and prevention team, said the reason for these roadblocks can be attributed to their poor traceability.
“The system they have is not able to solve the problem we have at hand. It’s not granular enough. Traceability from the farm to the point of service should be improved throughout the food industry.”

With over 100 suppliers, Chipotle has a long chain to regulate. Like many in the food industry, they don’t have an automated, drill-down method of lot traceability, which means a far slower response time in terms of reporting and tracking the pathogen. Williams admits that this is a common issue he sees when trying to locate the origin of large-scale, multistate outbreaks; indeed, his team has only been successful in less than half of all cases.

So how do you provide high-quality, fresh ingredients without risking consumer health?

In order to comply with FDA standards, have a better handle on food origins, and prevent outbreaks from spreading, it is imperative that any company dealing with foods turns to automation. Paper-based methods, especially for Chipotle’s large supply chain, need to be left behind.

Recording the lot or batch of an ingredient as it is picked and packaged and keeping a database of these records is just about the best way to protect your business from fines and minimize brand damage. Why? Databases are secure, regularly backed up, and able to be accessed from multiple points by workers on the floor and facility management. If a recall occurs, these records can be delivered to the FDA within the required 24 hour time period, and the company can quickly determine where the contamination starts and ends in the production or processing system.

Once the specifics of the outbreak are known, the company can inform the public of the danger much sooner, which goes a long way towards repairing trust and preventing lost revenue. Studies show that 87 percent of consumers will still purchase a brand after a recall if they felt the company was honest and transparent. A fast and thorough response time is the best way to mitigate damages, a response time only made possible by complete and sharable records. Gathering this information from the start- at the farm where the food is grown- is an easy, less expensive way to provide a visible supply trail.

Chipotle’s new plan to shift more ingredient prep out of local eateries and into its centralized kitchens may go a long way to preventing more foodborne illnesses in the future, but they can expect to face similar issues if they don’t implement a better tracking system. Only time will tell whether they can recover their once-strong fan base.

intrinsically safe and compliant class 1 division 1 tablets from Paragon

Paragon’s Class 1 Division 1 Line of Tablets Now Shipping

EXPLOSION-PROOF TABLETS FROM THE BARCODING EXPERTS: PARAGON’S CLASS 1 DIVISION 1 LINE

CLEVELAND, OHIO, DECEMBER 8th, 2015

Paragon Data Systems, Cleveland-based barcoding and system integrator experts, announced the official launch of isafedevice.paragondsi.com and the Ecom Tab-Ex® Product Line, an intrinsically safe, class 1 division 1 rated tablet. These tablets are just as functional as consumer electronics, but are able to be used where commercial models would be at risk for explosion. The revolutionary devices are now available for purchase.

While the use of tablets and other smart tools are now standard in most fields, companies in the pharmaceutical, oil and gas, refining, and chemical branches were often left out of many data collection options. There simply wasn’t a mobile product they could use without fear of setting off the explosive gasses or particles on their jobsites. Ecom’s hazard-certified, freshly engineered devices offer a revolutionary answer to these mobile safety and data efficiency concerns.

The Tab-Ex® hardware line are advanced, touch-sensitive tablets built on the Samsung Galaxy interface. Each tablet comes preloaded with mobile apps developed to interact with SCADA/DCS systems, enterprise systems like SAP, and computerized design systems. High-speed LTE coverage allows you to communicate safely and securely with your team. Most importantly, the class 1 division 1 tablet is rated for use in even the most dangerous environments. Its intrinsically safe design means it’s been specially wired to prevent explosion or sparks when exposed to flammable, hazardous, or harsh working conditions.

“Traditionally speaking, companies working with volatile chemicals or flammable aerosols were at a significant disadvantage when it came to collecting their data,” said James Unger, Paragon’s safety team expert. “Intrinsic safety regulations meant they couldn’t bring any electronics into a hazardous area- and that includes things we take for granted, like computers, phones, even flashlights. For most modern companies, it would be unthinkable not to have these items in the field, but for these industries, it was just a reality of the business.”

However, with advancements in technology, electronics like tablets are now able to be wired with a barrier to prevent ignition around chemicals or flammable particles. The Tab-Ex® class 1 division 1 tablet is currently the only tablet on the market that can be used in these hazardous spaces. The Paragon team is delighted to offer this mobile marvel to customers who need safe methods of data collection.
