Produce Safety & Security International, Inc.'s CEO Submits Food Safety Proposal to Texas Citrus Organization

IRVING, TX--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - Produce Safety & Security International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PRSF) is pleased to announce that the Company has submitted a proposal to Texas Citrus Mutual of Mission, Texas for the removal of mites and other citrus diseases. Produce Safety's CEO, Clarence W. Karney, met with Mr. Ray Prewett, President of Texas Mutual, to discuss the placement of the Company's Ozone Spray System within Texas Mutual. Texas Mutual is a non-profit trade organization that represents the interests of Texas citrus growers.

The proposal, which will also be submitted to Texas A&M University's Food Safety Director, outlines the need for the removal of mites and diseases that plague Texas's citrus crops yearly. Texas estimates crop production, as well as imported citrus brought in through many different ports, at 85,000 tons of oranges and 272,000,000 tons of grapefruit. The Company's products would protect consumers by keeping domestic products free from exposure of possible contamination from foreign countries. Produce Safety and Security's food safety process would also provide safe citrus products for the retail and processing industry.

"We feel confident that Texas Mutual and Texas A&M will consider placing our products into their citrus processes. We believe that our Ozone Spray Technology will allow for a more appealing citrus crop going forward, and a more appealing product overall," stated Clarence W. Karney, CEO of Produce Safety & Security International, Inc.
