BRENTWOOD, N.Y., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Although soap and water work well for simple cleaning, they won't do the job when it comes to killing the bacteria that causes illness. Something stronger must be used.
U.S. Nonwovens Corp.'s Disinfecting Rediwipes(TM) are a safe and economical solution to this pressing problem. Rediwipes are proven to kill 99.9 percent of common household bacteria, including Salmonella and E. coli.
"The first cardinal rule of safe food preparation in the home is simple: Keep everything clean," says Christopher Klapak, technical director of U.S. Nonwovens.
An estimated 36 percent of food-borne illnesses in the home result from cross contamination. That means contaminated cutting boards, counters, or utensils are not properly disinfected or sanitized before being used in the preparation of foods. Using Disinfecting Rediwipes can quickly and easily eliminate these bacteria and remove this threat.
The United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 76 million of the roughly 300 million people who live in the United States get sick each year from food-borne illnesses. More than 300,000 of those are hospitalized, and about 5,000 people die from food-borne illnesses each year.
Salmonella causes between 60-80 million cases of illness every year, and E. coli is responsible for recent food recalls.
Cargill Beef Solutions recalled over one million pounds of ground beef, while Annex Foods recalled over 4,300 pounds of contaminated beef and chicken. General Mills has recalled over five million contaminated frozen pizzas. The concern is that many of these products have already found their way into homes and kitchens.
"Rediwipes can be a valuable weapon to prevent harmful bacteria that may have landed on countertops and other surfaces from spreading," says Shervin Zade, CEO. Disinfecting Rediwipes Dispenser Canisters are available in various sizes and scents at retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart.
They come in an easy to use, reach-in dispenser canister and work well as an all-purpose cleaner to sanitize, deodorize, and disinfect. They are free of bleach and alcohol, and all product claims are supported and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. The product is made in the U.S.
