A woman’s family claims in a a lawsuit she died after contracting the antibiotic-resistant infection MRSA when she cut her leg on a shelf at a downstate Kmart store.

Its time that we take the design of our environment into account when considering ways to combat antibiotic resistant bacteria such as MRSA.

Kastus Log4+ kills up to 99.99% of MRSA when used on glass or ceramics.
