AMFIL Technologies Reports Food-Borne Illnesses Costing U.S. Economy an Estimated $152 Billion

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA--(Marketwire - August 27, 2010) -  AMFIL Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMFE), integrator of ozone-based cleaning and antimicrobial systems for the food and beverage industry, is pleased to report inquiries for their non-chemical based mPact ozone systems continue to increase worldwide. This increase is a result of the rise in salmonella outbreaks and other food-borne illnesses.

In a March 3, 2010 article in Bloomberg Business Week, it was reported food-borne illnesses are costing the U.S. economy an estimated $152 billion in health related expenses. $34.2 billion are related to salmonella, listeria and campylobacter. Recently, as reported nationwide on the news, over 500 million eggs were recalled due to a potential salmonella outbreak. This is the largest egg recall in United States history.

AMFIL is confident that its technology can be a substantial solution provider worldwide to help prevent food-borne illnesses. AMFIL's technology is non-chemical based and provides effective, quick anti-microbial cleaning, preventing companies from temporarily shutting down operations. This process can save companies millions of dollars and prevent against possible bankruptcy.

Ambrose Fillis, President and CEO of AMFIL Technologies, states, "Government regulations around the world are continuing to tighten in the food and beverage industry. Congress has already called for a major investigation regarding the nation's largest 500 million egg recall," Mr. Fillis further stated, "We anticipate regulatory bodies around the world will continue to mandate strict non-chemical based ozone cleaning requirements within the food and beverage industry. We are already experiencing increased inquiries and anticipate continued record sales in 2011."
