Tasker Products Receives USDA Authorization to Begin Commercialization of its Post-Chill Spray Application

FAIR LAWN, N.J., June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Tasker Products Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: TKER), a distributor and marketer of proprietary technology effective in inhibiting pathogenic bacteria, today announced that it has received authorization from the United States Food and Drug Administration ("USDA") to market its post-chill spray application, which will be used immediately after the Chill process in poultry processing plants to further eradicate pathogenic bacteria prior to packaging.

Poultry carcasses are run through a chilling tank to reduce their temperatures to approximately 40 degrees Fahrenheit (or less) to inhibit microscopic spoilage. Chlorine is used in the chilling tank water to destroy bacteria; however, due to the low temperature, solids form reducing the Chlorine's effectiveness in eradicating bacteria. Tasker's post-chill spray using Tasker Blue is highly effective at eradicating bacteria. The Company is also in the process of conducting USDA tests of a post-chill dip and is seeking USDA approval to market its Tasker Blue in the Chiller section.

Tests of Tasker Blue at various intervention points of poultry processing in three separate processing plants indicated that it had a significant and dramatic impact on aerobic plate count ("APC") and E. coli numbers on chicken carcasses to levels not currently attainable with any competing products.

Tasker Blue's ingredients are Generally Recognized as Safe ("GRAS") by the USDA, it does not gas-off (reducing workers' exposure to potentially hazardous fumes), and it poses no organoleptic damage across a broad range of pH concentrations and exposure times.

"We currently market Tasker Blue for use in the scalder, picker and post-picker intervention points. In addition to adding the post-chill spray, we expect to achieve USDA authorization to market Tasker Blue for the chiller section and as a post-chill dip," said Lanny Dacus, Tasker's president and CEO, commenting on the news. "USDA testing policies that were scheduled to go into effect at the end of March, were postponed, which had an impact on our marketing strategy for the scalder application. Although a set date for the new testing policies to go into effect has not been posted, poultry processors are beginning to prepare for the event and, as a result, we are experiencing increased interest in our scalder application."
