Any material that contains b u g s , v e r m i n , i n s e c t s , f i l t h o r any type of hazardous waste. 3. Any material that is unsanitary. 4.

No person shall use filling material that comes from an animal or fowl unless it complies with all sanitation provisions of the Division of Industrial Compliance. NOTE: Any secondhand bedding, upholstered furniture, stuffed toy, secondhand filling material, or other component parts to be used in the making of above said articles, received from companies located outside the State of Ohio shall also comply with all sanitation provisions of the Division of Industrial Compliance. HOW TO SANITIZE The most popular method in use today is the “Spraying Process.” Only chemicals approved by the Division of Industrial Compliance may be used in the spraying method. At this time, there are two chemicals that meet with approval: SteriFab and MicroBan X-590. Both chemicals are germicidal and have an insecticide additive. These two substances contain a non-toxic and non-flammable crystal that can be detected by state inspectors using a magnified ultra-violet lamp. The spraying process can be performed at the place of business in a separate well- ventilated room. The room shall be isolated from other parts of the establishment and ventilated to the outside by either natural or mechanical means. Proper application of the chemical shall be in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. The spraying operator is required to use an approved type mask to prevent inhalation of the chemical. Proper eye protection and gloves impervious to the spray should be worn.

New or sanitized articles shall be kept separate at all times from any secondhand articles or material that has not been sanitized.
