NSC, Cantel Medical to Market Pandemic Flu Defense Kits

Cantel Medical Corp. (Little Falls, N.J.) and the National Safety Council (Itasca, Ill.) announced a joint marketing and distribution agreement to help businesses and other organizations prepare for the threat of a flu pandemic and similar infectious diseases. Under the agreement, Cantel, a provider of infection prevention and control products to the medical and dental markets through its Saf-T-Pak and Crosstex business units, will manufacture NSC/Saf-T-Pak co-branded Flu Defense Kits and other product configurations that will include Crosstex face masks, hand sanitizers, gloves, and surface disinfecting products.

Cantel and NSC will co-market these products, along with providing planning and educational services, to more than 50,000 NSC members that represent a broad spectrum of industries and more than 8.5 million employees. According to Donna Siegfried, NSC's executive director of emergency care programs, "The National Safety Council sought to complement its 'Prescription for the Flu' educational program with infection prevention and control products that are proven to be effective. We selected Cantel Medical because of its product quality and ability to provide a full range of planning services, customized kitting and global distribution capabilities. Together, we can help employers keep their workers and their workers' families as safe and productive as possible."

The World Health Organization continues to track the incidence of avian bird flu throughout the world and warns of the potential of mutation of the H5N1 virus that could result in a widespread human-to-human pandemic.
