Nationwide E. Coli Outbreak Demonstrates Need for Megola's Food Purifying Systems

CORUNNA, ON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 21, 2006 -- Megola Inc. (OTCBB: MGOA), a leading environmental solution provider in physical water treatment, air purification, microbiological control, and wastewater treatment, announces that it will be carrying the CuisineClean and PurePrep food purifying systems by Vesture Corporation.

According to the FDA announcement on the recent E. coli outbreak, 131 cases of illness have been confirmed in 21 states, including 20 cases of kidney failure, 66 hospitalizations and one death, from eating contaminated spinach. For the full release go to

"With the potential for exposure to such pathogens as E. coli, Salmonella and others through the consumption of contaminated produce, we feel it is important that consumers have access to a non-chemical means of food sanitization in their own homes. As simply rinsing produce does not remove these potentially harmful microorganisms, we feel these products are essential for those who want to ensure the safety of their families," states Joel Gardner, CEO of Megola Inc.

"Contaminated produce is often cited as the number one cause of individual food-borne illness. While food safety should be ensured through responsible farming practices, the use of dirty irrigation water and untreated manure still poses a significant threat to consumers throughout North America. And the recent E. coli outbreak from triple-washed, bagged spinach shows that even processed foods can still harbor such pathogenic organisms," states Michael Gardner, Environmental Scientist with Megola Inc.

Megola has the answer:

The CuisineClean (manually-operated) and PurePrep (fully automatic, computer-controlled) process utilizes Activated Oxygen (ozone) to eliminate bacteria and other microorganisms on food surfaces. The extraordinary cleaning ability of these systems is due to the non-selective oxidation of the target organism by ozone. The ozonation process is more effective and up to 3000 times faster than chlorine, meaning microorganisms such as Salmonella, E-coli, Listeria, Giardia and Cryptosporidium are killed on contact. As an added benefit, the purification process also significantly extends the shelf-life of various foods.

The food purifying systems will initially become available in Megola's Smart-Home Centre opening in October (
