Different products which come in direct contact to the end user may carry a risk due to a unwanted microbiological burden.
Toys, textiles, leather goods, decorative articles and countless other articles: more and more consumer goods are manufactured and imported from remote regions of the earth. Due to production in hot, humid climate zones and long transport distances, goods which may look and smell quite normal on leaving their manufacturing sites, often reach their destinations with critically high concentrations of pathogens. Equally, animal and pet food have to reach the end user in a hygienic state, which poses no risk due to contamination e.g. with salmonella.
BGS reliably makes many micro-organism as bacteria, moulds and spores harmless, so the products can be safely offered on the market.
