Abstract (Summary)

Advancements in technology, manufacturing, and food production recently increased. With mass production, busy lifestyles, and ease of access, people forget the importance of the food expiration date. The increased use of chemicals and preservatives keeps food products fresh longer, however it increases the risk of food being poisonous if not monitored closely. An android application using Near Field Communication NFC can alert users and prevent them from consuming expired products. Embedding NFC tags into product packaging or labels can be useful. Later, the user can use the NFC tag embedded into product packaging to retrieve information about the product and set a reminder (alarm) to notify him/her of the product expiration date using their default calendar.
