Date:3/25/2009

Antimicrobial Developer Adds New Measurement Tool to Assist Processing Plants.

SHREVEPORT, La., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Since 2003, SteriFx Inc. and its FreshFx antimicrobial solutions have proven to be effective on the poultry processing line against Campylobacter jejuni (Campy), as well as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria. Now SteriFx can provide plant management another tool to help control Campylobacter by pre-screening birds for their current load of Campy at various points throughout processing.

"SteriFx now has the ability to measure levels of Campylobacter, and we can help processors get current levels in order to be better prepared for any new testing requirements," said John R. Dankert, Ph.D., CEO of SteriFx. "We have been successful in this regard for Salmonella, E. coli, and aerobic counts, and now can offer Campylobacter analysis."

Campylobacter species have been recognized as one of the leading causes of food illness in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Campy is diagnosed in 13 cases each year for every 100,000 persons - although many more cases go undetected. It is estimated to impact over 2.5 million people annually, with 100 to 200 deaths per year. A substantial portion of the illnesses and deaths are associated with meat and poultry.

To combat Campy in poultry processing plants, SteriFx personnel can provide Microbiological Testing Services, from collection of samples to data analysis. By using FreshFx antimicrobial solutions as part of a company's Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) efforts, it can control Campy and other pathogens - greatly reducing the risk of product recalls and helping to maintain consumer health.

FreshFx antimicrobial solutions are clear, odorless, digestible aqueous liquids that are non-toxic despite the low pH. They are easy-to-use and cost-effective. FreshFx solutions have been approved by the USDA for on-line reprocessing of poultry, as a meat and poultry processing aid and shelf-life extender. Their GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status allows for the direct use on food products as a secondary food additive.
