Produce Safety & Security International, Inc. Provides Solution for Reduction and/or Elimination of Staphylococcus Infections

Produce Safety's Ozone Process Proves Effective for Reduction and/or Elimination of Staphylococcus Infections in All Areas of Hospital

IRVING, TX--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Produce Safety & Security International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PDSF), an ozone sanitation disinfection process supplier for medical facilities, announces a PROVEN OZONE PROCESS and EPA-approved products for the reduction and removal of staphylococcus infections. Ozone is a non-chemical process that leaves no residue and kills bacteria and pathogens over 3,100 times faster and 51% better than chlorine. The use of ozone equipment saves money compared to the use of chemicals. Ozone can be used in water systems or introduced in the air in a safe, gaseous state; PDSF offers unobtrusive equipment that cleans and sanitizes at the same time. The Company's process is EPA-approved and exceeds OSHA standards. Use of the continuous ozone air process in the operating room during the operation provides continuous sanitation and removal of bacteria in the room. In all other areas of the facility, use of the ozone and Spherequat® sanitizer and disinfectant process maintains a bacteria-free environment (i.e., patient rooms, cafeteria, food preparation, storage, shipping and receiving areas, entrances, emergency rooms and emergency vehicles). Samples of common organisms destroyed by ozone are Staphylococcus albus, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus 'C,' Streptococcus faecalis, Streptococcus hemolyticus, Streptococcus lactis, Streptococcus salivarius, Streptococcus viridans, Hepatitis A, HIV, and Influenza.

CEO Clarence Karney states, "By using the PDSF sanitation and disinfection proactive approach for all areas of the hospital, staph infections can be significantly reduced and/or eliminated."
