According to the CDC, more than 48 million people in the US get sick each year from foodborne diseases. Tomi Environmental Solutions, the manufacturer of SteraMist, is committed to better protect our public health and food supply through their Food Safety Division.
SteraMist non-toxic disinfection technology can be used to disinfect vegetables, meats, eggs, poultry, fish and fresh flowers to lower formation of food-borne contamination leading to illnesses. A peer review article on food safety published in 2017 demonstrated that SteraMist’s cold-plasma activated hydrogen peroxide aerosol inactivates Escherichia coli, Salmonella, and Listeria while maintaining the quality of tomatoes, spinach, and cantaloupes. In addition, SteraMist technology achieved a greater log kill with quicker results than chlorine-based solutions, a traditional post-harvest method.
SteraMist contains low level of hydrogen peroxide that is ionized and released like a gas through cold plasma. The ionized hydrogen peroxide is one of the most powerful oxidizing agents in the nature and effectively eliminates 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses from surfaces without leaving any residue. Thanks to its proven safety, SteraMist can be used to disinfect virtually any space and facility including, but not limited to hospitals and medical facilities, cruise ships, office buildings, hotel and motel rooms, schools, restaurants, meat and produce processing facilities, military barracks, police and fire departments, and athletic facilities.
