Produce Safety & Security International Announces Further Information Regarding January's Company Releases

PRESCOTT, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 27, 2006 -- Produce Safety & Security International Inc (OTC: PDSC), a sanitation disinfectant process supplier to the food and medical industries, announced further details regarding several Company releases.

PDSC announced an initiative, establishing distributorships and dealerships, domestic and international, for its patented and EPA-registered Spherequat product line, including the Medic-Kleen, RTU 2525-200 and the Spherequat 1000, 6400, and 8600. Once in place, PDSC believes the annual revenues for the distribution program products to be valued at $ 9,875,000.

PDSC's EPA-registered Spherequat products remove Bacteria, Black Mold and Food Borne Illness Carriers from fresh produce. These pathogens have been linked to illness, infection, birth defects, and even death.

PDSC also announced the test results of its ozone system, which verified significant removal of pesticide residue during the packing process. The Company feels the product will greatly increase the Company's market penetration and could result in additional annual revenues exceeding $8,500,000.

Pesticides are inherently toxic and can lead to sickness, cancer, birth defects, and even death, if not removed properly from produce. Pesticide issues have been reported, specifically with Santa Sweets Grape Tomatoes, concerning several retail chains, including Wal-Mart and Publix. Additionally, as pesticides are monitored and regulated by the FDA and other agencies, it is in these retailers' best interests to push for the implementation of a cost effective pesticide removal method at the packing level.

PDSC believes its Ozone system to be the best option. The first full-scale use of this technology will occur at PDSC's Prescott, AZ, distribution center, focusing on the food service industries in Nevada, Arizona and Southern California.

The Company negotiated agreements with two ozone manufacturers for ozone misting units and ozone air units for use in the retail produce departments, as well. Scheduled for March 1, 2006 delivery and designed to meet the demand of thousands of stores. PDSC believes this initiative could be valued at $6,000,000 annually.

"January was a fantastic way to start 2006. We made three significant announcements, regarding potential revenues from three new agreements. We trust we are setting a solid foundation and we believe we can continue the momentum through the year," stated Clarence W. Karney, PDSC CEO.
