Produce Safety & Security International, Inc. Tracking and Audit System Set for Production in Six Months

Company to Use RFID in New Tracking System

LEWISVILLE, TX--(Marketwire - January 31, 2008) - Produce Safety & Security International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PRSF) is pleased to announce that the Company has implemented changes to its Tracking and Audit System, enhancing the capability of tracking and identifying food and produce during and between shipments. Produce Safety & Security's Tracking and Audit System will now include a radio frequency identification system (RFID). Production is set to begin on the new system in the near future, with a market ready version due in the next six months.

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 any given 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 addition of radio frequency identification will give added security to the produce or food product being shipped, showing the type and amount of product. Combined with the bills of lading, the RFID system gives food inspectors an accessible way of tracing spoiled or contaminated food and produce back to its country or place of origin.

"We believe the newly updated tracking and audit system will continue to raise the bar for food safety, starting with food and produce growers nationally and internationally. This complete traceability program will be available for all member of the food industry in the 4th quarter. We are forecasting substantial revenue derived from monthly recurring charges from clients who utilize our tracking system," stated Clarence W. Karney, CEO of Produce Safety & Security International, Inc.
