Products EPA Certified to Kill Deadly Fungus

February 13, 2020

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently certified 11 disinfecting products for use against multidrug-resistant fungus Candida auris (C. auris).

According to the EPA, these newly certified products provide hospitals and other health care facilities with the tools and information needed to help combat this emerging health threat. Prior to these 11 products there were no antimicrobial disinfectants registered specifically for use against C. auris. The EPA worked collaboratively with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure product effectiveness against C. auris.   

View the entire list of antimicrobial products registered for claims against C. auris here.

In addition, the EPA stated disinfectants with an EPA claim for C. difficile (List K) have been used effectively against C. auris.
