Produce Safety & Security International, Inc. Submits Proposal to U.S. Sea Ports for Food Tracking and Audit System

IRVING, TX--(Marketwire - December 12, 2007) - Produce Safety & Security International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PDSS) is pleased to announce that the Company has completed its research and development phase of the Produce Safety & Security Tracking and Audit System. The system will track and prepare all shippers for inspection and testing of their products. The Company has submitted a proposal to gulf coast sea ports for the new system to track and monitor receiving, inspection and shipment processes for all foods going in and out of ports.

The Tracking and Audit system will use a series of bills of lading, which are assigned special bar codes to track information on specific shipments within each port. Each bill of lading will carry information such as time of arrival, grading of last inspection, grower's name and information, and where the shipment is held in the warehouse. Produce Safety & Security will then create an electronic communications process by which bills of lading are transmitted to Produce Safety when either a shipment is sent or received to a port or warehouse. The receipt of this electronic bill of lading (eBoL) will serve as the initiation point for Produce Safety & Security's processing.

"One contributing factor to food deterioration & food borne illnesses is the time it takes to get all the necessary paperwork and inspections in order to pass through the port authority screenings. We feel our system will greatly reduce the likelihood of food borne illness and spoilage and increase productivity for shipping and receiving products throughout the United States," stated Clarence W. Karney, CEO of Produce Safety & Security International, Inc.
