World Renowned Joe's Stone Crab Restaurant Is Now in SafeHands

Historic Miami Beach Restaurant Joins SafeHands® Program to Help Prevent the Spread of Germs

MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - January 25, 2010) - No visit to South Florida is complete without at least one stop at the world famous Joe's Stone Crab restaurant.

Established nearly a century ago, Joe's has been the favorite of many historical figures such as Will Rogers, Amelia Earhart, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Gloria Swanson, Joseph Kennedy, J. Edgar Hoover, Walter Winchell and Joe DiMaggio. Today, Joe's continues to serve celebrities, dignitaries and other patrons with the most discriminating tastes.

Offering the finest in dining, Joe's has partnered with SafeHands, Inc. to offer its patrons the finest in instant hand sanitizers.

"Given the rising and appropriate concerns over germs passing from hand to hand, we've installed a number of SafeHands® sanitizing stations throughout the restaurant," said Brian Johnson, general manager of Joe's. "Our mission at Joe's has always been to offer our patrons the highest quality ingredients and an outstanding dining experience so it only made sense that we should offer our patrons the premier instant hand sanitizer solution. We took a look at a number of products and determined that SafeHands® alcohol-free products were the best on the market in helping to stop the spread of germs without the harshness of alcohol," added Johnson.

"Our SafeHands® dispensers are automatic hands-free so our patrons do not have to touch anything to take advantage of a sanitizer that doesn't dry out their hands."

"We're proud to be helping Joe's Stone Crab, a world-class restaurant, with their concerns over the safety of their patrons," said Dr. Jay Reubens, founder and president of SafeHands, Inc.

SafeHands® is an alcohol-free instant hand sanitizer with moisturizer for multiple daily uses. SafeHands® kills germs without stripping away the skin's natural oils so it never leaves the skin dry.

Its proprietary formula uses an FDA approved germ-killing agent that has been scientifically tested and proven superior to alcohol-based products in killing germs, while also being non-drying, skin soothing and non-flammable. SafeHands® has presented scientific data that shows that the frequency and use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers actually has an inverse relationship with germ killing and contamination.

About Joe's Stone Crab
