TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. ("TOMI") (NASDAQ:TOMZ), a global company specializing in disinfection and decontamination solutions, announces a new groundbreaking study demonstrating the effectiveness of its solutions against foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV). This significant advancement supports the Company's submission for an additional EPA label.

Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) represents a critical global threat, being an extremely contagious disease affecting a wide range of cloven-hoofed animals including cows, pigs, sheep, goats, and deer. The rapid spread of FMDV among livestock can lead to significant economic losses and disrupt international trade if not promptly and effectively controlled.

TOMI's recent study has proven SteraMist iHP technology to eliminate infectious FMDV from both porous (concrete) and non-porous (stainless steel) surfaces in the presence of organic soil load. This achievement meets the stringent EPA standards for demonstrating virucidal efficacy. The study, conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate's (S&T's) Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC), adhered to the strict regulatory guidelines of the U.S. Select Agent Program and utilized methods aligned with EPA-approved testing standards.

Dr. Halden Shane, CEO of TOMI, emphasizes the critical nature of combating Transboundary Animal Disease (TAD) outbreaks, such as FMD, "These diseases not only disrupt domestic agricultural production but may also severely impact international trade of agricultural commodities. TADs have the potential to cause widespread economic and societal damage, particularly in regions where agricultural animals are a primary livelihood. Our mission extends into the food safety sector, aiming to halt the transmission of viruses and prevent cross-contamination. This latest study underscores our commitment to providing effective solutions in the fight against global animal diseases," Dr. Halden Shane remarked.

TOMI continues conducting research to strengthen its role as a crucial advocate for advancing global health and ensuring food safety, protecting against infectious diseases.
