FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Woodcliff Lake, N.J., March 03, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Sani Professional, the food safety division of PDI, announced three of its products have received approval for the SARS-CoV-2 efficacy claim from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): No-Rinse Sanitizing Wipes, No-Rinse Sanitizing Spray and Disinfecting Wipes.
The expanded label claims against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, have met EPA efficacy requirements for hard, nonporous surfaces based on test results conducted by Microbac Laboratories. Microbac conducted and released the following test results of the following products against the SARS-CoV-2 virus: No-Rinse Sanitizing Wipes and No-Rinse Sanitizing Spray are 99.9% effective against the virus in 1 minute. Disinfecting Wipes are 99.9% effective against the virus in 3 minutes.
“As a company deeply rooted in the prevention of community-acquired infections (CAIs), Sani Professional is committed to provide our customers with products that improve food safety and public health,” said Esperanza Carrion, Vice President and General Manager of Sani Professional. “Our mission continues to offer the public a safe experience in away-from-home settings.”
No-Rinse Sanitizing wipes, Disinfecting wipes and No-Rinse Sanitizing spray are all included on the EPA’s List N: Disinfectants for Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health agencies and officials continue to recommend cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces at least daily, or as much as possible and as required by food safety requirements1 using products listed on EPA's List N: Disinfectants for Coronavirus (COVID-19) as a best practice measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in community settings.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in higher expectations of cleanliness throughout the foodservice operation. Restaurant operators have had to increase the frequency of cleaning more surfaces which creates additional stress on employees and operations.” said Dwight Sweeney, VP of Sales. “At Sani Professional, our goal is to provide foodservice operators with products and resources that help simplify the complexities of food safety compliance. Our solutions are fast, simple, and convenient, and can be adopted with minimal training”.
Frequent hand washing and disinfection of surfaces can protect employees, customers and communities and slow the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, the National Restaurant Association’s Reopening Guidance recommends increased cleaning and disinfecting of hard surfaces between uses and/or customers.²
