Gras Approval Of Ozone

In July 1997, a panel of experts concluded that there is sufficient scientific evidence to certify that ozone and its use is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) when used at levels and by methods consistent with good manufacturing practices (12). This announcement fulfilled the requirements of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) process that permits the use of ozone in those products for which it has jurisdiction; namely, fruits, vegetables, and seafood. Since then the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved the use of ozone on a case-by-case basis with submittal of a description of the process using ozone for meat and poultry. While the number of ozone applications is increasing in the United States, ozone seems to be a solution looking for a problem. The status quo is the use of chlorine and chlorine dioxide in various forms and commercial sanitizers, such as quaternary ammonium. The main problem ozone has in gaining acceptance is a lack of a track record and the high up-front cost associated with the generating equipment. Fortunately, there is continuing improvement on ozone's track record and equipment cost.
