A multi-site evaluation was conducted at a Quick Serve Restaurant chain. PURE Hard Surface replaced the current sanitizer without change of corporate in-store SOPs, in the kitchen, food preparation and dining areas. During the three-month evaluation, control stores were tested concurrently using the current chain sanitizer. Corporate protocol stated that APC counts higher than a specific level were considered to be a reportable “incident”.
APC samples taken from control locations where the sanitizer remained unchanged observed reportable incidents in 25% on average. Locations using PURE Hard Surface observed reportable incidents in only 0.9% on average of APC samples taken.
