Bact-Off and Smart Plastic Technologies are introducing a snap-on shopping cart handle Smart Plastic's antimicrobial SPTek GARD to address current global health concerns and reduce in-store cross-contamination. The solution for retail settings was created to be effective against MRSA, salmonella, listeria, E coli and more with its recyclable design.
The cart handle design infused with SPTek GARD was developed to address the fact that "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 doorknob." The simple, snap-on device from Bact-Off and Smart Plastic Technologies helps to reduce cross-contamination risks by offering a high degree of antimicrobial protection.
