Press Releases Carnivore Meat Co. Donates UV Equipment to Health Care Systems for Medical Mask Sterilization The equipment is supporting HSHS hospitals in Eastern Wisconsin and Prevea Health. Published 3 weeks ago on January 4, 2021 By Press Releases Share Tweet (PRESS RELEASE) GREEN BAY WI — Pet food manufacturer, Carnivore Meat Company has announced the donation of its UV sterilization equipment to two local health care systems: HSHS hospitals in Eastern Wisconsin (St. Vincent Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay; St. Clare Memorial Hospital in Oconto Falls; and St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan) and Prevea Health. Amid shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) that surged in March of this year, Carnivore Meat Company responded by donating the use of its UV equipment to sterilize masks and other PPE for local first responders and health care professionals. “We were inspired to move quickly and help ensure our community health care providers could access safe, clean masks as needed and at a time when PPE was scarce across the nation,” commented Lanny Viegut, Carnivore Meat Company CEO and Owner. “President Trump’s March 21 call to action for America to help our front-line workers sparked the idea of using our UV equipment for mask and PPE sterilization, and we were able to act quickly.” Within a single week, the concept became a reality. Working with local health professionals, Viegut organized the relocation of the equipment to a clean room facility on March 29, which became the first known fully operational, continuous in-line UV PPE sterilization facility in the United States. Since that time, the facility has processed thousands of masks for health care facilities, police and fire departments, dental offices and local businesses throughout Northeastern Wisconsin, allowing them to safely and confidently serve their communities. Nearly 70 organizations have benefited from services provided by the UV sterilization facility, despite the ongoing shortages of N95 masks nationwide. Earlier this year, the Wisconsin State Hygiene Lab had considered replicating the facility to aid other communities in other parts of the state. “It is our sincere hope the HSHS Eastern Wisconsin hospitals and Prevea Health will be able to assist even more health care workers and first responders in addition to businesses, locally or regionally, should they find themselves in need,” Viegut said. “We’re blessed to be in a position to help and play a proactive role in overcoming COVID-19 related difficulties.” Advertisement Related Topics:Carnivore Meat CompanyLatest News Top click to Comment(Comment) Advertisement You may like Whippet ‘Bourbon’ Wins Best In Show at 20th AKC National Championship Open Farm Receives $65M in Private Equity Investment 2020 Holiday Sales Grew 8% Despite Pandemic, NRF Reports Promoted Headlines Let’s Hear it for the Comfort Zone Tall Tails Category Spotlight: Terry Naturally® Animal Health Category Spotlight: eTailPet Advertisement Latest Trending Videos Press Releases1 day ago Two Companies from Bend Oregon Team Up for the 2021 Stage Stop Sled Dog Race Press Releases1 day ago New Tiki Cat Grill Pate Wet Cat Food Features Real Fish & Seafood Recipes in Broth Press Releases1 day ago Choice Pet Products Welcomes New Territory Manager to the Team Headlines4 days ago Open Farm Receives $65M in Private Equity Investment Photo Gallery1 week ago How Indie Pet Stores Are Celebrating — and Selling — Valentine’s Day Press Releases1 week ago Lightspeed Launches Supplier Network for Independent Retailers Trace's Store School2 months ago Video: Trace’s Store School: How to Build Community — and Grow Revenue — with Other Businesses Trace's Store School2 months ago Video: Trace’s Store School: Get Ready for Black Friday and Small-Business Saturday Trace's Store School2 months ago Video: Trace’s Store School Teaches You How to Start a Produce Co-Op for Pets Advertisement SubscribeBULLETINS Get the most important newsand business ideas from PETS+.
