EPA has issued a new label for ActiveGuard Mattress Liners, removing restrictions from its use.

| February 20, 2012

AMBLER, Pa. – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a new label for ActiveGuard Mattress Liners, removing restrictions from its use. ActiveGuard can now be used by persons of all ages.

ActiveGuard’s new labeling, approved by the EPA and now being routed for approval at the state-wide level, removed five restrictions from the previous label. These changes make the use of ActiveGuard available to persons of all ages, including small children.

In addition to removing the age restriction – previously ActiveGuard was labeled for use with children over the age of five years old – four more restrictions were also removed from the prior label as a result of the EPA’s review of ActiveGuard.

Allergy Technologies, the manufacturer of ActiveGuard, submitted a review of relevant exposure data to the EPA, which supported their decision to remove these restrictions from the product’s use.

According to Joseph Latino, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Allergy Technologies, the new label opens new markets and will assist in expanding the company’s growing foothold in existing segments.

“The EPA’s decision is not only tremendously positive for Allergy Technologies but also for Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) and end-user customers including homeowners, hotel owners and general managers, multi-family and public housing property managers, cruise ship professionals and more,” said Latino. “The industry’s best pro-active tool for killing bed bugs just became easier to use across the board. We’ve always been dedicated to providing the industry with a tremendous product that is a staple in their fight against bed bugs. Once the new labeling has been approved state-wide, PMPs across the country will be able to use ActiveGuard without restriction.”

ActiveGuard are thin and breathable liners easily installed onto mattresses and box springs, which kill bed bugs and dust mites continuously for up to two years. ActiveGuard mattress liners kill bed bugs within 72 hours, even for those resistant strains.
