The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (“FIFRA”) governs “pesticides,” which include products intended to prevent, destroy, repel or mitigate viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms except for viruses, bacteria, and microorganisms in or on living people or animals. It is illegal to sell or distribute a pesticide without first registering it with EPA as a pesticide under Section 3 of FIFRA. 7 U.S.C. § 136a. A registration is only approved by EPA after rigorous review to determine that the pesticide is both safe and effective when used as indicated on the label.

Tzumi’s Wipe Out! Wipes, Wipe Out! Multi-Surface Wipes, and Wipe Out! Multi-Surface Decontaminant Spray have not been registered with EPA as pesticides. Therefore, these products may not be sold or distributed as intended to eliminate microorganisms on surfaces and should not be used for this purpose.

Wipe Out! Wipes are hand wipes to be used for skin application only and should not be used as a disinfectant or sanitizer on surfaces.

Wipe Out! Multi-Surface Wipes are cleaning wipes and should not be used as a disinfectant or sanitizer on surfaces.
