WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sani Professional, the food safety division of Professional Disposables International (PDI), announced that three of its products have demonstrated effectiveness against the SARS-CoV-2 virus: No-Rinse Sanitizing Wipes, No-Rinse Sanitizing Spray and Disinfecting Wipes. The test was conducted by Microbac Laboratories, a premier 3rd party testing laboratory.
Microbac released the following test results against the SARS-CoV-2 virus: No-Rinse Sanitizing Wipes and No-Rinse Sanitizing Spray delivered a 3-log reduction against the virus in 1 minute. Disinfecting Wipes demonstrated a 3-log reduction against the virus in 3 minutes. All three Sani Professional products were tested in compliance with "Disinfectants for Use on Environmental Surfaces, Guidance for Efficacy Testing."
These latest results are currently being evaluated by the EPA.
"As a company deeply rooted in the prevention of community-acquired infections (CAIs), we are 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 general public a safe experience in away-from-home settings. Currently, our Disinfecting Wipes and No-Rinse Sanitizing Spray are both on the EPA's List N and the testing results from Microbac affirming efficacy against the Covid virus will provide operators with products they can trust alongside stringent preventive measures."
Dwight Sweeney, VP of Sales of Sani Professional adds "The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly raised awareness for cleanliness and safety. As restaurants begin to reopen, effective cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting and hand hygiene solutions will be essential."
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 Use Against SARS-CoV-2 as a best practice measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in community settings. 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
