MAFF disinfectant figures – a warning

IN reply to the comment about disinfectants, it should be remembered that the MAFF tests do not truly take into account the level of soiling that is present in practice; hence a product may have MAFF approval at, say, 1:300 for FMD, but the manufacturer may still reccomend 1:100.

This is especially true for foot dips and straw barriers.
