Bact-Off Uses GARD™ to Protect Customers While Shopping

May 14, 2020

Announcement

The current coronavirus threat has exposed the need for retailers to seek out better ways to serve the health and well being of customers and their families. Shopping carts are identified as one of the most germ contaminated high-touch items, with a bacteria count of up to 73,000 colony forming units (CFU) per square inch and 361 times more bacteria than a bathroom door knob.

Enabled with SPTek GARD™, the Bact-Off cart handle protects customers against this cross-contamination risk with a proven efficacy of up to 99.999% in antimicrobial protection.

GARD™ is designed to defend.

Bact-Off, a global self-care consumer packaged goods company, in partnership with Smart Plastic Technologies, announced today the introduction of a simple, snap on plastic handle infused with the SPTek GARD™ antimicrobial additive. Given global health concerns and the current state of the retail economy, this product provides consumers and retailers with a solution that supports a clean and healthy in-store shopping experience.

A few key features of the Bact-Off shopping cart handle:

  • Safeguard customer health with antimicrobial protection
  • Enhance consumer confidence during in-store visits
  • Combat dangerous, illness causing germs
  • FDA approved and extensively tested
  • Sustainable, recyclable design
  • Made in the USA

Bact-Off’s design works with shopping carts currently in use at leading retail locations, defending against daily germ cross-contamination from the moment you enter the store.

SPTek GARD™ antimicrobial is added during the Bact-Off cart handle film production process, making it highly effective against MRSA, Salmonella, Listeria, E coli, and dozens of other dangerous organisms.
