The Cooperative Extension Service is offering free testing of pressure canner dial gauges on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Extension Office located in the same building as Fish and Game on Kalifornsky Beach Road. Gauges can be tested on or off the lid of the canner.
It is important to have pressure canner dial gauges checked annually to help assure home canned food is safely processed. There will be free food preservation publications available. Pressure canners using weighted gauges do not need to be checked.
For more information contact the Cooperative Extension Service Office at 1-800-478-5824.
