July 7, 2006 10:30 AM Central Daylight Time to Discuss How PDSC's EPA-REGISTERED Food Safety Process Proves Effective Against Avian Flu (Bird Flu), HIV, Black Mold, Food-Borne Virus E.coliH157, Salmonella and Listeria Outbreaks for Use at the Retail Store Level Produce, Seafood, Meat, Deli, Poultry and All Food Processing Production Operations

PRESCOTT, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 6, 2006 -- Produce Safety and Security International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PDSC), an ozone and sanitation disinfectant process supplier to the Food, Construction, Cleanup, Transportation and Medical Industries, announces today that its CEO, Clarence W. Karney, is scheduled to be interviewed with MN1.Com

Produce Safety & Security International has a suite of solutions for two of the most serious problems within the perishable food industry: shelf life extension and the reduction of pathogens such as Listeria, Salmonella, and E.coli 0157H: 07.

Nutrition experts have placed increased emphasis on the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, and organic foodstuffs. The consumers' response to this advice has forced grocers to expand produce and seafood offerings, as well as increase imports of produce and seafood.

Produce Safety and Security International technology helps grocers protect and leverage their investments in these areas by increasing the shelf life and prolonging the freshness of seafood and produce without compromising organic labeling requirements. As a result, grocers are able to provide greater diversity of produce and seafood, maintain its quality, and reduce the risk associated with spoilage in these high-risk areas. The return on investment for clients will be generated from shelf life extension (reducing shrinkage up to 50%), customer satisfaction (safer products and eliminating odors), and reduced liability (recalls and lawsuits associated with food-borne illnesses).

"PDSC is operating in a vital sector and it is important to utilize all forms of media to get the word out. I plan on outlining how we've positioned the company, domestically and globally, to provide complete pathogen reduction processes and detail the wide scope of applications and potential users," Karney said.
