Although the U.S. food supply is among the safest in the world, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tells us foodborne diseases affect millions of Americans every year, resulting in thousands of deaths. Media coverage of food contamination incidents raises consumer awareness of the risks of microbial contamination of foods. Consumers want to know how they can reduce their chances of contracting foodborne illnesses.

Chlorine disinfectants are readily available, inexpensive weapons in the battle to control foodborne illness. Applied to food preparation surfaces, chlorine disinfectants can be highly effective in controlling many disease-causing microbes, including bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli and viruses such as hepatitis A.
