Food Inspection Set

Food Inspection Set

The Food Inspection Set, Veterinary was issued to members of the Army Veterinary Corps who were charged with ensuring food safety. The set contained the essential tools to examine packaged foods upon delivery such as a hammer and pry bar, tin snips, awl, two bimetal thermometers, and a pocket rule. The tools in the set allowed the veterinarian in charge of food safety to inspect food for freshness, temperature, quality, and sanitation before accepting food deliveries.

This set dates from the Vietnam War era.
