Lower Your Environmental Listeria Positives

Effective control of environmental Listeria is achievable. 

The combination of low levels of ozone during production, coupled with elevated levels at nightly, weekly and/or monthly intervals is a very effective way to augment your current sanitation practices.  A study using a high concentration of ozone gas-based treatments for 30 minutes for decontamination of surfaces and rooms achieved a 3 log reduction of Listeria.

Environmental Room Disinfection:

Ozone room disinfection controls cross-contamination and defends against Listeria in high-risk rooms that cannot be cleaned & sanitized regularly. Atmospheric ozone is dispersed throughout rooms by fans or through ventilation systems.
