YemData Grinding Log is an Android app that was developed to help users to comply with the new rule from the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, Records To Be Kept by Official Establishments and Retail Stores That Grind Raw Beef Products.


Grinding Log simplifies the record keeping process, adding date and time, and by scanning data from GS1-128 barcodes on product boxes to capture:


  • supplier and name of the supplied materials (GTIN)
  • supplier lot number (Batch/Lot or Serial Number)
  • production date (PROD DATE)


The user enters:

  • Establishment Number,
  • pounds of material used and
  • optional comments.


Additionally, the user can easily record the date and time when grinding equipment and other related food-contact surfaces are cleaned and sanitized.


The app uses the popular Android operating system and suitable devices are inexpensive, less than $100.  Data is easily accessible and securely stored in the ‘cloud’ so users can access their data whenever they need it.  YemData Grinding Log comes with a free, no-obligation 30-day trial subscription.  Paid subscriptions cost $225 for 6-months or $399 for 12-months.
