• Paradise Tomato Kitchens employing X-ray scanners for safety

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Paradise Tomato Kitchens, a supplier of tomato-based sauces for pizza and restaurant chains, is now using an X-ray scanning system to detect potentially harmful particles that may have entered products during manufacturing.

According to a release, though the company never has experienced such a contamination, it wanted to be the first in its industry to use the technology to ensure the safety of its products.

"We've always been committed to the safety and security of our sauces, and this technology gives us the means to take that commitment to a higher level, while also raising the bar for all food industry suppliers," said Ron Peters, Paradise CEO.

Paradise's products are scanned after packaging for shipping. The scanner not only detects metal, but it also can find glass, stones and other potential contaminants.

The X-ray machine is an Eagle Case model made by Smiths Heimann, located in Alcoa, Tennessee. Smiths Heimann is the world's largest manufacturer of X-ray inspection systems for security and other applications.
