SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PURE Bioscience, Inc. (OTCQB: PURE), creator of the patented non-toxic silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial, announced that the Company has received final acknowledgement from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that its Food Contact Notification (FCN) for use of PURE Control® in raw poultry processing to reduce pathogens became effective last week. The FCN for PURE Control will be added to the list of effective notifications for FCNs, which is available on the FDA website: http://www.fda.gov/Food/IngredientsPackagingLabeling/PackagingFCS/Notifications/default.htm. As previously announced on April 27, 2017, the FDA had completed its review of the safety and efficacy of the proposed use of SDC in concentrations up to 160 PPM as a raw poultry processing aid, and set an effective date of May 18, 2017. On Monday PURE is initiating an in-plant raw poultry processing trial in which SDC-based PURE Control will be spray applied to whole chicken carcasses during Online Reprocessing (OLR). The USDA has already approved PURE Control for use in pre-OLR and post chill poultry processing. Upon receipt of the “Letter of No Objection,” PURE can immediately commercialize PURE Control for OLR applications and begin to market PURE Control as a superior raw poultry processing aid into the +$350m US market. FDA approved PURE Control antimicrobial is applied directly onto raw poultry carcasses, parts and organs as a spray or dip during processing to eliminate pathogens causing foodborne illness, including Salmonella. PURE is not aware of any equally effective, lower toxicity solution to eliminate Salmonella in poultry processing – and believes PURE Control is the breakthrough solution the poultry industry has been seeking. SDC is distinguished by the fact that it is both more effective and non-toxic. Currently used poultry processing intervention chemistries, most notably Peracetic acid (or PAA), are highly toxic, irritants to users, negatively impact the environment, are corrosive to equipment, and have a negative yield impact. Hank R. Lambert, CEO of PURE, said, “We are enthusiastically taking the final steps toward commercializing PURE Control as a raw poultry processing aid - our second large and important US market for the product. Once we complete the in-plant poultry trial for OLR applications and obtain USDA approval, we look forward to achieving meaningful market penetration in the US processing aids markets for both poultry and produce, a combined +$650m US market opportunity.” PURE Bioscience, Inc. is focused on developing and commercializing our proprietary antimicrobial products primarily in the food safety arena -- providing solutions to the health and environmental challenges of pathogen and hygienic control. Our technology platform is based on patented stabilized ionic silver, and our initial products contain silver dihydrogen citrate, or SDC. SDC is a broad-spectrum, non-toxic antimicrobial agent, which offers 24-hour residual protection and formulates well with other compounds. As a platform technology, SDC is distinguished from existing products in the marketplace because of its superior efficacy, reduced toxicity and it mitigates bacterial resistance. PURE is headquartered in El Cajon, California (San Diego metropolitan area). Additional information on PURE is available at www.purebio.com.

The included Schedule Compliance checks cover ‘Work Breakdown Structure’, ‘Resources’, ‘Schedule’ and ‘Links’. In the first release, there are 29 compliance checks, and more will be added over time. The included Governance checks deal with project-level exceptions, ranging from schedules where the status has not been updated or published, to unsubmitted timesheets, overdue risks and issues, as well as incomplete work in the past and actuals tracked in the future. There are 12 standard checks in the first release of the app, and more planned for the future. Organizations can choose the severity for each check, or ignore certain ones altogether. For valid exceptions on projects, individual checks can be ‘Bypassed’. The Sensei Portfolio Advisor™ app is available for individual users in the Microsoft Office Store, and organizations can purchase an Enterprise license directly from Sensei Project Solutions.

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 11, 2017) - Amfil Technologies Inc. ( : AMFE) is pleased to announce that on top of having exclusive distribution rights for Cards Against Humanity in Canada, it is in the process of receiving exclusive international distribution rights for Cards Against Humanity in other parts of the world. Cards Against Humanity is one of, if not the most popular party game currently on the market. The game was officially released in May 2011, and only a month later became the number one game on Amazon.com. Since its release, the popularity of the game has continued to surge, making it difficult for retailers to keep stock on the shelves as demand for the game has been staggering. As a result, the game which retails for around $25, has reportedly been sold by third-party sellers asking as much as $150 for a copy on Amazon. The game is currently available in The United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom however Ben Castanie, founder and leader of Snakes & Lattes Inc. has been very proactive about working with Cards Against Humanity to sell their products into additional global regions and secure the international distribution rights to those regions. The Exclusive Distribution Rights means that Snakes & Lattes Inc. will be the only authorized distributor for Cards Against Humanity in Canada as well as for the secured global regions and will fulfill all orders made for the game to those areas. The newly secured regions will be disclosed in the near future. Snakes & Lattes Inc. recently received a very large order from Indigo Chapters for a shipment of Cards Against Humanity, among other games. Management anticipates this to be just the beginning of large purchase orders for this popular game title, and as a result, increased revenues is expected from fulfilling orders throughout Canada and from the secured international regions. Snakes & Lattes Inc. has recently hired an expert with many years of experience to lead the sales team for the distribution side of the business. They have also hired a new warehouse manager to coordinate and manage the increased fulfillment demand relating to the exclusive distribution of game titles including Cards Against Humanity. More on this to come shortly. Update on the Snakes & Lattes 3rd retail location at Yonge & Eglinton in Toronto, Ontario, Canada: A new division of Snakes & Lagers Inc. has been created in partnership with executive head chef Joseph Shawana to open "Kū-kŭm", a fine dining restaurant centered in the culinary traditions and narratives of the indigenous people of Canada. The kitchen is led by Chef Shawana, who was raised on the Wiikwemkoong Unceded Reserve located on Manitoulin Island on Lake Huron. Kū-kŭm 's focus on showcasing local, sustainable Canadian ingredients coupled with the native culinary traditions evident in Chef Shawana's cooking has already garnered media attention. Major digital and print news outlets including VICE, The Toronto Star and BlogTO have contacted the team for news stories. On May 11th 2017, CBC's The National is coming to profile the restaurant and interview Chef Shawana, shortly before the official opening, scheduled this coming week. The Toronto Star article featuring Chef Joseph was very well received and the restaurant is expected to be busy as soon as the doors open. More information relating to Kū-kŭm can be found at http://www.kukum-kitchen.com/ For more information on Amfil Technologies, Inc. please visit our website at www.amfiltech.com or follow us on twitter at @AmfilTech where you can find further and more frequent updates from the company. Amfil Technologies, Inc. is the parent company to three wholly owned subsidiaries. 1). Snakes & Lagers Inc. holds the trade name and is the owner of Snakes & Lattes Inc. which currently operates a 6,000 sq. ft. and a 7,500 sq. ft. tabletop gaming bar and café located in Toronto, Ontario that brought in over $7M CDN in revenue last year. It is in the process of opening a third location at 10,000 sq. ft., the largest to date. Snakes & Lagers Inc. is also the procurement officer of all existing and future Snakes & Lattes Inc. franchises and has the exclusive rights to sell franchise locations globally.

For more information on Snakes & Lattes Inc. feel free to visit the website at www.snakesandlattes.com 2). The EcoPr03 GROzone Antimicrobial System was jointly developed between Amfil Tech and A.C.T.S. Inc. which recently rebranded its technology under Advanced Ozone Integration as an extension of the existing ozone technology being utilized in the food and beverage industry and integrated by A.C.T.S. into companies such as Pepsi, Nestle, Sysco, Sun Pacific and many others. The system is a triple-function sanitization unit capable of naturally eliminating 99.9% of water and airborne pathogens and the typically problematic pests that wreak havoc for cultivators (like aphids, whiteflies and spider mites), as well as bacteria, fungus, microbes and mold on surfaces, all without chemicals. The unit can also constantly regulate a given facility's water supply, oxygenating the water and maintaining a consistent PPM infusion of ozone that prevents the formation of algae, bacteria or mold (allowing for comprehensive water recycling), simultaneously removing the need to use pesticides and/or dangerous, often carcinogenic products to treat production problems, as is common throughout the industry today. This environmentally-friendly solution also eliminates odors, while slightly reducing the air temperature, lowering energy consumption by the HEPA filtration and HVAC systems and could potentially allow for a facilities process to be labeled certified organic in the U.S.A. when the crop is no longer considered illegal on the federal level, otherwise "Clean Green" or "Certified Kind" in the meantime. The EcoPr03 GROzone Antimicrobial System recently passed product review by a registered USDA certifying agent for use in California as well as Pennsylvania and surrounding states. More information on this product line can be found on the www.grozone.biz website. 3). Interloc-Kings Inc. is a hardscape construction company servicing the Greater Toronto Area. This subsidiary is an authorized Unilock installer, Unilock being, North America's premier manufacturer of concrete interlocking paving stones and segmental wall products.
