ACI: Interest group's attack an assault on common sense

April 25, 2012

WASHINGTON — The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has expressed disappointment with an outrageous new publicity campaign designed to promote false fears about cleaning products that are used safely and effectively every day, according to a press release.

"Cleaning products play an essential role in our daily lives. By safely and effectively removing soils, germs and other contaminants, they help us to stay healthy, care for our homes and possessions and make our surroundings more pleasant. Consumers can continue using cleaning products with confidence," said Brian Sansoni, ACI vice president of communication.

"The Environmental Working Group''s new publicity attack on practically every cleaning product category is really an assault on common sense. The group distorts the science and research about product and ingredient safety. It ignores the fact that an enormous amount of resources are dedicated to assuring the safety of products, including many millions of dollars in research, development and testing before products ever hit the shelves," Sansoni added.
