MARSHFIELD, WIS., Nov. 1, 2010 – To address the need for metal detectable supplies in food plants, Nelson-Jameson has brought together a wide line of processing tools and protective apparel that can be easily detected. Of those products, Nelson-Jameson is proud to announce that they are now the only U.S. distributor to the food industry of Detectaglove™ metal detectable disposable gloves.
The highly-visible blue color of the gloves can be detected as a whole or if pieces fall into product in the electromagnetic range of 50 Khz – 1 Mhz. Compliant with FDA 21 CFR for food handling, these vinyl gloves are powder-free and sold by the box of 100.

Nelson-Jameson, Inc. has been an integrated supplier for the food industry since 1947. Product lines include safety & personnel, production & material handling, sanitation & janitorial, processing & flow control,
“My name is Amanda Sasse, and I’m a Nelson.” That may sound like the kind of opening one makes when joining a group similar to AA, but it’s actually an introductory phrase that I’ve uttered more than once in the last year and a half since joining Nelson-Jameson as an outside salesperson. I’ve managed to “fly under the radar” with most of my customers, but my genetics have betrayed me in other company-related affairs such as Nelson-Jameson board meetings, trade shows and, as I’ve recently experienced, FISA membership.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the annual FISA (Food Industry Suppliers Association) conference in Charleston, South Carolina. FISA is a trade organization that was founded over 50 years ago, and membership includes both independent distributors and manufacturers that go to market through distributors. Current members operate in many industries in which sanitation and high-purity is stressed, such as the food, beverage, pharmacy, bio-pharm, and personal care industries. Currently, there are more than 110 member companies.
