The press releases above may include conclusions about
Antimicrobial Copper that do not reflect EPA product registration
approvals. The conclusions reached in these articles are the
opinions of the researchers and authors. U.S. EPA-approved testing
demonstrates efficacy of Antimicrobial Copper surfaces against only
the following organisms: Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter
aerogenes, Escherichia coli O157:H7, Pseudomonas aeruginosa,
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and
Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE). Any reference to
effectiveness against other organisms has not been proven by U.S.
EPA-approved testing. No claim of antimicrobial effectiveness
is made, either express or implied, with regard to organisms other
than those identified above. Further, any references that state or
imply effectiveness in controlling disease or the transmission of
bacteria that can cause disease in humans have not been approved by
the U.S. EPA or FDA. Antimicrobial Copper surfaces cannot make
"infectious disease control" claims. Antimicrobial Copper surfaces
have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but they do not
necessarily prevent cross contamination.
