As a food technologist I was interested in the comment (question) asking
about the thermal effects of an irradiation process.  There is no increase in
temperature as far as I know.  Irradiation is successfully used to treat meat
and meat products that would be either frozen or refrigerated.  Probably the
most famous product that was first treated is strawberries -- a delicate
refrigerated product that goes through irradiation beautifully -- as would
other fresh fruits and vegetables.
