February 14, 2006 — /MARKET WIRE/ — PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Produce Safety & Security International Inc. (OTC: PDSC) (“PDSC”), a sanitation disinfectant process supplier to the food and medical industries, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with Global Inspection Service (“GIS”) to provide third party inspection and remediation services.
PDSC will begin Truck Sanitizing Operations for GIS by late March. The agreement calls on PDSC to provide broad sanitation services, in addition to a systematic inspection process, by employing its EPA-registered Spherequat Products and Ozone Process for Truck Sanitation Operation.
PDSC’s Spherequat product removes Bacteria, Black Mold and Food Borne Illness from Disaster Areas. These pathogens cause product breakdown and have been linked to illnesses, including infection, birth defects, and even death.
PDSC’s Ozone System removes pesticide residue. Pesticides are inherently toxic and can lead to sickness, cancer, birth defects, and even death, if not removed properly from produce and are monitored and regulated by the FDA and other agencies. It is in the retailers’ best interests to push for the implementation of a cost effective pesticide removal method at the packing level.
“We welcome Global Inspection Service to the PDSC Team. This joint venture agreement calls on PDSC providing a comprehensive inspection program with an audit trail. This will give PDSC the assurance that the transportation conveyance is certified clean, preventing cross contamination,” said Clarence W. Karney, CEO of PDSC, who added, “We feel the initial response to this program shows the extent of the demand for this service and I would also like to state that we have additional nationwide opportunities available.”
