Sporicidin® products enable compliance with recommendations made by the US Centers for Disease Control
(CDC) for infection control and care of patients with confirmed or suspected Swine Influenza “A” (H1N1). For
healthcare settings, infection control guidelines published by the CDC for Swine Influenza “A” (H1N1) state
"disinfection strategies used during influenza seasons can be applied to the environmental management of
swine influenza." For home settings, the CDC recommends keeping "surfaces clean by wiping them down with
a household disinfectant according to directions on the product label."

In addition to meeting the CDC guidelines for Swine Influenza “A” (H1N1), Sporicidin® Disinfectant Solution
and Towelettes are EPA registered to kill the following pathogens:

What is Swine Influenza “A” (H1N1)?

Swine flu is a respiratory disease commonly found in pigs. For more than a century, this type of virus has been
observed in both humans and swine. In 1918 a swine influenza outbreak called the Spanish flu affected
people around the world and killed as many as 100 million people. This epidemic was caused by an
exceptionally virulent strain of the Influenza “A” virus strain (H1N1).

The strain of swine influenza “A” that is currently causing concern has the following characteristics:

• It spreads easily between people.
• People not normally considered “high risk” (young adults) are contracting this disease.
• It has made a significant number of people sick in many countries around the world.
• The flu vaccination that was made available this season does not protect against this strain.

What can you do about Swine Influenza “A” (H1N1)?

  1. Promote good personal hygiene. Thorough hand washing and cleaning of public surfaces are the best
    ways to minimize exposure to harmful pathogens. Sporicidin® Lotion Soap is a surgical scrub used by
    hospitals and medical practices to protect against harmful microorganisms. Sporicidin® Disinfecting Solution is a liquid disinfectant that contains surfactants (soap) for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces in
    household and professional settings.
  2. Use a safe product. Developed by the inventor of Chloraseptic® throat spray and utilizing exactly the
    same active ingredients, Sporicidin® Disinfectant Solution is one of the safest disinfectants available.
    Used in hospitals and around children for 30+ years.
  3. Keep healthy. Sporicidin® Disinfectant Solution, when used according to label instructions, is effective
    against many microorganisms.
  4. Stay informed. For updates on Sporicidin® products, visit
