SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Tuesday approved use of two Lysol disinfectant sprays against COVID-19, Lysol’s parent company Reckitt Benckiser Group Plc. announced.
In a statement, the EPA said it had approved Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist, based on lab testing that showed the products were effective against coronavirus.
“Lysol is currently testing the efficacy of other disinfectant products in the brand portfolio,” Ferran Rousaud, marketing director for Lysol, said in a statement.
Lysol’s parent company, Reckitt Benckiser, had warned people against using disinfectants to treat the coronavirus after President Donald Trump apparently suggested injecting disinfectants may be a way to treat the coronavirus.
