Produce Safety & Security International Announces Expansion of Ozone Ice Machine Facility Located in North Carolina and the Opening of Prescott, Arizona Facility

Produce Safety & Security International Proceeds With Expansion of North Carolina Facility and as a Result of Increased Sales and Contract Opportunities Will Open the Second Assembly Facility at Prescott, Arizona

PRESCOTT, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 29, 2006 -- Produce Safety & Security International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PDSC), an ozone and chemical sanitation disinfectant process supplier to the food and medical industries, announces the expansion of two facilities for assembly of ozone ice machines and other Ozone products for delivery to the seafood industry retail chains.

Ozone leaves no residue in the water or on the product (because it breaks down to oxygen), so there is no change in color or flavor of product. Using ozone gives more assurance against bacteria organisms and at the same time, conserves water and extends the shelf life of the product by as much as 5 days. The test protocol achieved up to a 99.9% reduction of microorganisms including pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria, and E-coli 0157 H: 07.

Clarence W. Karney, CEO of Produce Safety & Security International, states, "The expansion of these two facilities was caused by the increased sales and new commitments from domestic and international clients. These two facilities will also assemble six of PDSC'S other Ozone product lines. Revenues for current contacts are over $500,000.00."
