So far, there is no scientifically confirmed evidence of food transmitted SARS-Cov-2 infection, which resulted in a Covid19 disease. Clinical cases of this respiratory disease has been correlated with direct transmission. Nevertheless it might be interesting and important for food producers, e.g., for import/export to test in some cases for SARS- Cov-2 on surfaces in addition to regular hygiene actions, -controls, and-testing.

The combination of the commercially widely distributed COPAN Regular Flocked Swab with 1 mL UTM® Medium (Art. No. 359C) as it is used for swabbing also in clinical cases , the SureFast® DNA/RNA Virus kit (Art. No. F1051), and the detection kit SureFast® SARS-CoV-2 PLUS (Art. No. F7110) were validated by AOAC in an Emergency Response Validation and certified for use of stainless steel surfaces with certificate number 022102.
