General Information

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

QUATRO is designed for use in dairies, restaurants, animal quarters and kennels where disinfection, sanitization and deodorization is of prime importance. When used as directed, this product is formulated to disinfect hard, non-porous, inanimate environmental surfaces.

This product deodorizes those areas, which generally are hard to keep fresh smelling, such as garbage storage areas, empty garbage bins and cans, pet areas and any other areas, which are prone to odors caused by microorganisms. This product can also be used for sanitization of shell eggs intended for food in shell egg and egg product processing plants when used as directed.

This product is recommended for use as a sanitizer for food processing equipment at 200-400 ppm active quaternary without potable water rinse. This product is not for use on critical and semi-critical medical device surfaces.

DISINFECTION

To disinfect inanimate, hard non-porous surfaces apply use-solution with mop, cloth, sponge, low-pressure coarse spray or hand-pump trigger sprayer so as to wet all surfaces thoroughly. Allow to remain wet for 10 minutes, then remove excess liquid. For heavily soiled areas, a pre-cleaning step is required. Prepare a fresh solution for each use.

For low-pressure coarse sprayer and hand-pump trigger sprayer applications, spray 6-8 inches from the surface; rub with brush, sponge or cloth. Do not breathe spray.

NOTE: For spray applications, cover or remove all food products

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

SANITIZATION - Recommended for use in dairies, and food processing plants. When used as directed this product is an effective sanitizer against Escherichia coli (ATCC 11229), Escherichia coli 0157:H7 (ATCC 43895), Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538), Yersinia enterocolitica (ATCC 23715) and Listeria monocytogenes (ATCC 35152).

Remove all gross food particles and soil from areas, which are to be sanitized, with a good detergent, pre-flush, pre-soak or pre-scrape treatment. Rinse with a potable water rinse. Prepare a fresh solution daily or more frequently as soil is apparent. To sanitize pre-cleaned and potable water-rinsed, non-porous public eating establishment and dairy+ food contact surfaces: prepare a 200 ppm active quaternary solution by adding 1 ounce of this product to 4 gallons of water, 2.5 ounces to 10 gallons of water, or 5 ounces to 20 gallons of water.

To prepare a 200 ppm active quaternary solution, use the dilution table in the Label.

To sanitize immobile food processing equipment and surfaces (tanks, finished wood or plastic chopping blocks, counter tops, conveyors) flood the area with a 200 to 400 ppm active quaternary solution for at least 60 seconds, making sure to wet all surfaces completely. Drain the use-solution from the surface, and air dry.

To sanitize mobile food processing utensils (knives, grinders, shredders, cleavers, ladles), immerse in a 200 to 400 ppm active quaternary solution for at least 60 seconds, making sure to immerse completely. Remove, drain the use-solution from the surface, and air dry.

When used for sanitization of previously cleaned (public eating establishment food contact surfaces, dairy processing equipment) food contact items, limit the active quaternary to 200 ppm. NO POTABLE WATER RINSE IS REQUIRED. This product is an effective sanitizer when diluted in water up to 650 ppm hardness (CaCO3).

To sanitize previously cleaned food-grade eggs in shell egg and egg product-processing plants, spray with a solution of 1 ounce of this product in 4 gallons of warm water (200 ppm quat). The solution should be warmer than the eggs, but not to exceed 130oF. Wet eggs thoroughly and allow to drain. Eggs sanitized with this product shall be subjected to a potable water rinse only if they are broken immediately for use in the manufacture of egg products. Eggs should be reasonably dry before casing or breaking. The solution should not be reused for sanitizing eggs.

To prepare a 200, 300 or 400 ppm active quaternary solution, use the dilution table in the label.
