Safety

How do I dispose of waste after a kit is used?

After following the kit instructions for proper spill clean up, dispose of the bag as required by your local, state and federal regulations for infected solid waste.

How do I find my lot number and expiration date?

Pouches: Both are stamped near the bottom of the product with the first 4 numbers showing the expiration date, followed by the lot number. (ex. 1115N199) Bottles: Both are laser printed near the bottom either right on the bottle or can be found on a sticker on the bottle. Boxes: Both are found on a sticker on the box.

Why does my product not have an expiration date on it?

Safetec Kits: The outer packaging of any Safetec kit does not receive expiration dating during manufacturing because there are multiple items within a kit that each have different expiration dates, depending on the individual date of manufacture. Safetec does strive to efficiently package kits with only the most recently manufactured internal components, ensuring a 2 to 3-year shelf life.

OTC products (have Drug Facts): Products that do not have a dosage limit (like amount per day) do not require expiration dating. Safetec is required however to have proven test studies showing product stability over a 3-year shelf life, by the FDA. If a product states a dosage limit in the Drug Facts-Uses like “not more than 3 to 4 times daily” then an expiration date will be displayed on the innermost packaging.

SaniZide Products: Which SaniZide products require you to use personal protection?

Both. SaniZide Plus® and Pro® both require the proper use of disposable latex gloves, gowns, masks and eye coverings when handling items soiled with blood or body fluids.
