BRIDGEPORT, CT (PRWEB) July 13, 2006
T.J. Greene Supplies (http://www.tjgreenesupplies.com) announced a free book offer for schools, restaurants, and hospitals that purchase four (4) or more bottles of instant E.coli and instant salmonella test strips. The book “ Germs Are Not For Sharing” written by Elizabeth Verdick is a children’s book geared at helping kids learn the benefits of good hygiene and the importance of not spreading germs.
Recent outbreaks of Salmonella and E. Coli, caused by industry contamination or improper home cooking procedures, have contributed to severe illness among consumers worldwide
Thomas Greene, President of T.J Greene Supplies, says that the product has three key elements for success in the service industry: “These instant tests are cheap (around $3.00 per strip), quick (results under 20 minutes), and easy to use.”
Salmonella bacteria, found in meat, and animal waste, particularly poultry, causes food poisoning in humans. The MMS Salmonella strip can detect 50 of the most common and deadliest strains. The strips are submerged in food samples, if the organism is present the strip will change color.
Escherichia coli (usually abbreviated to E. coli) is one of the many species of bacteria that is naturally found in the lower intestines of warm-blooded animals. “There are literally thousands of varieties of E.Coli, and the most common and deadliest strains have been included such as E.coli 103 and 0157:H7 for detection in the instant E.Coli strip.
“This is a national campaign aimed at spreading awareness of the importance of everyone’s responsibility to good hygiene “ says Greene “We believe the product truly helps managers (spot) check food and surface areas to ensure that these strains of bacteria and their facilities aren’t going to be harmful to the public”
