OAKLAND, Calif., May 5, 2008 While MRSA has been an issue in healthcare settings for years, CA-MRSA outbreaks in the community have been on the rise, with the greatest risk in community settings such as fitness clubs, in sports teams, at schools and daycare centers. In May, The Clorox Company will launch Clorox Pro Quaternary All-Purpose Disinfectant Cleaner, a disinfectant that is EPA registered to kill germs, including Healthcare-associated and Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (HA-MRSA and CA-MRSA).
Clorox Pro Quaternary All-Purpose Disinfectant Cleaner is a one-step, labor-saving solution for killing both strains of MRSA as well as a variety of other illness causing germs, such as Hepatitis B and C, Avian Influenza A, HIV-1 and HIV-2, SARS-associated Coronavirus, Rotavirus, Salmonella enterica and E. coli. This hospital grade disinfectant is also a powerful cleaner with a no-rinse pH-neutral, bleach free formula.
This product offers confidence to those professionals who want to help reduce the spread of germs in their environment, particularly those who are vulnerable to a CA-MRSA outbreak, said Jennifer Case, New Business Development Manager, Clorox Away from Home Division. Clorox Pro Quaternary All-Purpose Disinfectant Cleaner is EPA registered to kill both healthcare and community associated strains of MRSA, and is also a powerful all-in-one cleaner and disinfectant that gives you peace of mind that you are using the right product to disinfect surfaces and help reduce the risk of exposure.
