April 24, 2006 — /MARKET WIRE/ — PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Produce Safety and Security International, Inc. (OTC: PDSC) (“PDSC”), a sanitation disinfectant process supplier to the food and medical industries, is pleased to offer the Company’s new E.P.A. approved Spherequat® 8600 R-T-U (Ready-To-Use) antimicrobial product, for use in Federally Inspected poultry and meat packing facilities, as a proven disinfectant on inanimate hard non-porous surfaces.
Spherequat® 8600 R-T-U (Ready To Use) product has been approved by the E.P.A., with registration number 10324-85-92131, for use as a disinfectant, mildewstat, fungicide cleaner and deodorizer that has also been proven effective against the H5N1 and Avian Influenza viruses.
Spherequat®8600 R-T-U is applied using a handheld spray device, and unlike Produce Safety’s Spherequat®1000 industrial application previously announced on March 27th, 2006, does not require a professional applicator. The Spherequat®8600 R-T-U, when used in conjunction with Spherequat®1000, maintains a complete sanitary environment in all areas of the poultry and meat packing facilities.
This product is bactericidal according to the Association Of Analytical Communities (AOAC). Use Dilution Test method on hard inanimate surfaces modified in the presence of 5% organic serum against, Avian Influenza, Salmonella typhl and Salmonella choleraesuis to name a few.
Clarence Karney, Chief Executive Officer of Produce Safety and Security International, Inc., stated, “The importance of maintaining a sanitary enviorment in all applications of the food industry should be the health care professional’s number one concern each day, not just during the period of a crisis. Continuous sanitation cannot be over emphasized.” Mr. Karney continues by stating, “This product will be ready for delivery to Produce Safety’s clients from the Arizona and Kentucky Distribution Centers in early May.”
Produce Safety would like to also announce that the capacity of the new Prescott, Arizona, Distribution Center has been recently increased by 100%. This expansion was the direct result of increased sales for the entire Spherequat and Medic-Kleen product lines that has made it necessary to provide a distribution center that will maintain an inventory of 3 container loads for each product line.
