MSUE offers free dial gauge canner testing

Submitted by MSUE

BIG RAPIDS — Did you know that your pressure canner dial gauge needs to be checked for accuracy every year?

To make sure that your canned foods are safe to eat, your gauge must be accurate.

Michigan State University Extension is offering free dial gauge canner testing.

Dial gauges can be tested by appointment or drop off at the MSU Extension office, located at 14485 Northland Drive.

The free testing is performed on dial-gauge pressure canners only. Weighted gauges need not be tested.

Bring your canner lid with gauge and gasket with you for the most thorough assessment.

For more information or to make an appointment, call MSUE at (231) 592-0792.
