Electronically pasteurized hamburger debuts in U.S.

5/15/2000-The Titan Corporation's wholly owned subsidiary, the SureBeam Corporation, and Minnesota-based Huisken Meats announced the introduction of Huisken Beef Patties, the first food product in the U.S. to be electronically pasteurized with the SureBeam technology. Today's announcement comes on the heels of President Clinton's mandate last week for regular Listeria testing of hot dogs, luncheon meats, and other prepared meats. The Titan SureBeam and Huisken launch marks the beginning of a national rollout and the first opportunity for consumers to select higher quality, safer beef products. "Similar to a microwave oven, the SureBeam system uses ordinary electricity as its energy source to pasteurize food after it has been processed and packaged," says Larry A. Oberkfell, SureBeam's President and CEO. "Other, older technologies use radioactive materials as their energy source." The hamburger patties will be available at leading supermarkets in the Minneapolis area on May 16.
