Xenex Files Suit Against Clorox

Xenex Disinfection Services LLC and Clorox Co. has landed in court. Xenex recently filed a lawsuit in Bexar County District Court seeking a ruling declaring that the San Antonio company is not falsely advertising its Germ-Zapping Robots as the Oakland. The two sides are scheduled to meet outside of court to try to resolve their spat. Xenex sells portable robots that sanitize hospital rooms using pulsating rays of xenon ultraviolet light. The technology helps reduce infections by eliminating pathogens and germs from a room in five minutes, the company boasts. The robots have been placed in more than 300 hospital systems. Clorox took exception to various claims made by Xenex, including that its Germ-Zapping Robots are nine times more effective against bacteria in five minutes than mercury devices. The Clorox system uses "low-pressure mercury lamps". Xenex also claimed the following: "Mercury bulbs contain elemental mercury, which means they are classified as hazardous and toxic." Clorox argued the claim "exaggerated the potential health hazards associated with mercury bulbs". But before NAD could issue its decision, Xenex informed it that the company was discontinuing its claims. The reason was unrelated to the challenge.
