Companies Fined $325,000 for Selling Pesticide to Fight Coronavirus
“E.P.A. Says Zoono USA and Zoono Holdings, New Jersey companies, sold Zoono Microbe Shield through numerous websites and were fined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The product, Zoono Microbe Shield, from Zoono USA and Zoono Holdings, was sold online through Amazon and other websites and to community centers and was even purchased by United Airlines during the height of the pandemic to disinfect cabins, the E.P.A. said Wednesday in a statement announcing the settlement”.
Here is what we reported back in Feb of 2021 on Germwashing.com. Hard to believe both United and Southwest were sold on the false claims from this company. Many products push the “spears and spikes” technology that somehow penetrates the cell wall of viruses and wipes them out. The problem is the only claim they have is against odor-causing bacteria.
We reached out to both Southwest and United about the false claims, and they eventually took down the PR on their websites, we are not sure when they stopped using the product.
