ion conditions and customer perceptions.

-- Ongoing microbial monitoring tests food and food preparation surfaces for bacteria, which can cause illness, spoilage and poor quality in perishables.

-- FastCheck(TM) provides an immediate response to customer food-related illness complaints and includes testing of suspect products.

To become certified, the following retail banners owned by Spartan Stores were audited and tested to demonstrate compliance with NSF's food safety criteria: Glen's Markets, Family Fare Supermarkets and D&W Fresh Markets. Spartan Stores also has a certified food manager working every shift where food is being prepared or served. Ongoing monitoring and testing ensures that Spartan continues to comply with all certification requirements.

"The NSF Certification helps supermarkets improve the quality and shelf life of their perishables and also provides customers with reassurance that the foods they purchase have been tested to the most stringent food safety standards," said Tom Chestnut, Vice President, NSF Food Safety & Quality.

For achieving certification, Spartan Stores can display the NSF Shop Fresh(TM) mark

(http://www.nsf.org/business/newsroom/press_releases/ShopFresh%20Mark.jpg) in advertising, circulars, storefront displays as well as designated locations throughout the store. This mark signifies Spartan Stores' continuing dedication to providing the freshest, safest, highest-quality food.

Additional information on the Shop Fresh(TM) program can be found on NSF's website (http://www.nsf.org/business/shopfresh/index.asp).
