Can anyone tell me what the penny test is. We are to do it when monitoring refridgerator temp. Any one out there who has recently gone thru JACHO cert?

I am not positive about the penny test with the refridgerator however, I do know they will put pennies in restraints to see if they have actually been removed and reapplied. My guess would be they might attempt something like that with the fridge. Does that sound possible there?

The penny test is meant for the freezer. You freeze a cup of water, then place a penny on top. You check it each morning to make sure the penny is still on top....if it isn't you know the freezer/fridge lost power and you need to check your vaccines ,lab samples, quality controls, etc.
