“Ideal for use in settings that require high standards of hand hygiene, like food service and food manufacturing, AgroBac Pure FOAM offers users an effective, reliable and triclosan-free product to avoid cross-contamination,” said Isabelle Faivre, Vice President of Marketing, Skin Care, SC Johnson Professional. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year roughly one in six Americans (or 48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. The spread of germs from the hands of food workers to food is a common cause of foodborne illness outbreaks. According to the CDC, it accounts for 89 percent of outbreaks in which food was contaminated by food workers.”
