Microbial contamination is the food industry’s main safety concern. Public Health Regulations require that all inanimate food contact surfaces be properly cleaned and sanitized to protect the public health from exposure to the hazards of disease transmitted through the cross-contamination of surfaces soiled with infectious micro-organisms.
The soiling of food contact surfaces with germs takes place in the normal course of preparing, handling, and consuming food. Any surface which comes in contact with uncooked meat, poultry, or fish may become contaminated with bacteria such as E. coli. EPA has recognized that surfaces and articles such as glasses, dishes, and utensils that become soiled with infectious microorganisms found in bodily fluids (saliva and/or blood) can be associated with potential for the transmission of disease, including HIV-1 (AIDS Virus) through cross contamination. Persons with infectious diseases patronize public eating and drinking establishments and can create a potential for the spread of disease.
Tested and evaluated under strict EPA testing protocols, STERAMINE 1-G TABLETS is the first sanitizing product to be developed that has been accepted and registered by the EPA as being effective in killing not only infectious bacteria but HIV-1 (AIDS Virus) as well.
