In connection with the announcement, Sterigenics issued the following statement:
“We are pleased the Court has entered the order to continue the safe sterilization of vital medical products and devices at our Atlanta facility. In addition to being one of the most advanced sterilization facilities in Georgia and the United States in terms of emission control, our Atlanta facility plays a critical role in serving the urgent needs of health care workers and patients. We will continue our safe sterilization operations at the facility in the interest of public health. We are confident the legal proceedings will ultimately confirm our legal rights to continue those operations beyond the litigation for future public health needs.”
