CRE Alert:

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has produced a compilation of the burden and threats posed by antibiotic-resistant germs that have the most impact on human health. 

Topping the list of antibiotic resistant bacteria is Carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE).  CRE has become resistant to nearly all antibiotics.  The CDC estimates 9,000 people are infected by CRE and over 600 die each year as a result of CRE infections.  Those living in long-term or complex medical care facilities and nursing homes are at a higher risk of developing CRE infections.

The CDC asserts that an important step that needs to be taken to combat CRE is preventing infection and the spread of disease.   Please review the PURE Hard Surface Disinfectant & Sanitizer label in the downloads to the right side of this page and in the table below. Areas of application for PURE ™ include homes, offices, hospitals, restaurants, schools, hotels, restrooms, recreational facilities, and public transport vehicles.

  • GRAS Status (Generally Regarded as Safe)**
  • Powered by SDCTM (silver dihydrogen citrate)-the first new generation antimicrobial to be registered with the U.S. EPA in more than 30 years. Compare with "old generation" ingredients such as alcohol, quats or bleach.
  • Kills germs in as few as 30 seconds.* Conventional brands take up to ten minutes to kill germs.
  • Provides ongoing surface protection for up to 24 hours.*
  • Assigned lowest toxicity category by U.S. EPA-no hazard warnings on label. Most disinfectants are poisonous and must include hazard warnings.
  • See the PURE Hard Surface Field test in the Downloads. "This 'real world' field test confirmed that the introduction of PURE Hard Surface disinfectant and sanitizer into existing cleaning protocols can significantly mitigate the threat of contamination and improve overall food safety."
  • Odorless-Ideal for use near patients and children. Toxic products have irritating and unpleasant fumes.
  • Non-corrosive and does not irritate skin. Other surface disinfectants can be corrosive, can irritate the skin and must be rinsed.
  • Non-flammable, no VOCs or ozone depleting compounds. Products containing alcohol may be flammable and may contain VOCs or ozone depleting compounds.
  • Meets Sustainability Program Criteria. Products that contain toxic, corrosive, irritating or flammable ingredients or that contain VOCs do not meet sustainability standards.
  • Eliminates more than 30 harmful germs including MRSA, HIV 1, Hepatitis B, NDM-1, CRKP, VRE, Acinetobacter baumannii, Hepatitis C, Norovirus, E. coli, Influenza A, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Listeria, Rhino Virus, Herpes Simplex Type 1, Polio Type 2, Human Corona Virus, H1N1, Rotavirus, and Avian Influenza A.** Broad spectrum antimicrobial activity with fast kill times.
