FDA Releases New Food Code Recommendation for Ozone on Food

Eco-Safe Systems USA, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ESFS) is pleased to bring to the public’s attention a significant change in the FDA Food Code recommending the use of ozone.

Michael Elliot, President of Eco-Safe, stated, “Although the FDA has allowed the use of ozone on food since 2001, organizations such as the National Restaurant Association have not previously taken a position on its use. However, the most recent FDA Food Code changes have recommended its acceptance, and the ServSafe materials produced by the National Restaurant Education Foundation will now specifically mention the use of sanitizing produce by washing in ozonated water.”
Elliot continued, “The National Restaurant Association represents over 380,000 of the nearly one million restaurants in the United States, and at least one person in every member restaurant must be certified in regard to the ServSafe training. The certification of these individuals is approved by all health agencies. This is a tremendous step forward in educating food service management about the benefits of Eco-Safe Ozone Disinfection, and will provide an enormous boost to our marketing efforts.”
