Complying with Government Requirements

Food-borne illnesses cost $152 annually in direct medical expenses and lost productivity, recent studies show.

Foodborne pathogens such as Salmonella cause 1.4 million illnesses and 600 deaths annually. Salmonella costs at least $1 billion a year in direct and indirect medical costs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Escherichia coli causes 20,000 illnesses annually with 2,000 hospitalized in the U.S. and about 60 dying as a direct result of E. coli infection and its complications. A 2005 study estimated the annual cost of E.coli to be at least $405 million a year (in 2003 dollars).

In 2001, a jury awarded $4.75 million for the first E. coli lawsuit.

Hand-washing is recognized as the simplest, most effective way of reducing the rate of foodborne illnesses.

Because it takes 15 seconds of friction to dissolve, HandGiene's specifically engineered antimicrobial soaps and sanitizers substantially reduce the bacterial and viral contamination of hands and the transmission of illness-causing pathogens.

HandGiene’s monitoring and recording system will meet HACCP and ISO-9000 standards, food code requirements and impending government regulations for documentation of hand-hygiene compliance in an easy-to-use way.
