Electrolyzed Water Gives Boost to Eliminating Food-Borne Bacteria Such as
Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria Murray's Chicken to be First Poultry
Processor to Utilize New Technology in its Food Sanitation Process
"Clean" Process Coincides with Murray's Chicken's Green and Sustainable
Commitment as it partners with EAU Technologies for Empowered Water(TM)

ATLANTA, April 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- In keeping with their
commitment to producing the healthiest, sustainable and most natural chicken
possible, Murray's Chicken, a family-run poultry processor based in So.
Fallsburg, New York, is switching to electrolyzed water as its primary
processing cleaning agent.  Murray's Chicken has signed a contract with EAU
Technologies Inc. ("EAU" or "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: EAUI), a leading
provider of Electrolyzed Water -- EMPOWERED WATER(TM) -- for high-volume,
business-to-business applications, to use EAU's technology in creating
electrolyzed water for food sanitization at its processing facility. Murray's
Chicken will be the first poultry processor in the United States to utilize
the technology on an industrial scale. Successful trials, including several at
the University of Georgia, have shown that electrolyzed water is highly
effective at killing food-borne bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli and
Listeria, without affecting the quality of the food.
    "Our goal has always been to provide our customers with the healthiest,
safest poultry while maintaining an eye on social responsibility. We grow our
chickens without administering any antibiotics, and our chickens are fed a
100% vegetarian feed free of any animal fats or animal by-products. EAU's
electrolyzed water is created using natural ingredients and has been proven
non-toxic in addition to being effective," said Steve Gold, Vice President of
Marketing for Murray's Chicken.
    Electrolyzed water, marketed as Empowered Water(TM) by EAU, is created by
combining salt and water with an electrical charge.  The process separates the
positive and negative ions of water, creating two forms of water, one very
acidic and one very alkaline.  The alkaline EO water is used to clean the
chicken, followed by a rinse of the electrolyzed acidic water to kill any
remaining food-borne pathogens.  Empowered Water(TM) has been proven non-toxic
and environmentally friendly when used at approved concentrations.
    "We have conducted extensive research, including a study trial at
Murray's, to validate our belief that Empowered Water(TM) can be an effective
cleaning agent in industrial settings.  In addition, research conducted with
the University of Georgia has shown electrolyzed water to be as much as 10
times more effective at killing bacteria than other tested methods, including
the use of heat," said Wade Bradley, President and CEO of EAU Technologies.
"We are confident that Empowered Water(TM) will be beneficial in assisting
processing plants with meeting the new standards announced by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture."
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service
(FSIS) announced earlier this year new policies and practices targeting its
Salmonella verification sampling program.  The proposal is part of an overall
initiative to raise performance standards among poultry and beef processing
plants in testing and eliminating Salmonella, E. coli, Campylobacter and
Listeria within the plant.
    EAU's industrial application is able to produce large volumes of
electrolyzed water, scaling from 0.5 up to 90 gallons per minute.
Installation is expected to be completed with Murray's utilizing Empowered
Water(TM) as part of its sanitation process by May.
    About Murray's Chicken:
Murray Bresky, Murray's Chicken's namesake, took over his family poultry
business, Falls Kosher Poultry, in the early seventies. Since then he has
remained committed to the chickens he raises and to those who eat them. In
1993, Murray's Chicken began providing consumers with all natural poultry,
raised in Pennsylvania's Amish Country, without the use of antibiotics, growth
drugs or hormones, earning it the Certified Humane Label. Murray Chickens has
a big personal commitment to producing natural poultry products, supporting
local family-farmers and encouraging a healthy environment.  Now consumers can
