L. M. BUDDY BLAIN NAMED PRESIDENT OF VINDICATOR

 TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Sam Whitney, founder and chairman of Vindicator, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIFL) announced today the addition of prominent Tampa attorney L.M. Buddy Blain as president and chief operating officer of the company.
 Vindicator operates the nation's first and only commercial food irradiation facility in Mulberry, Fla.
 The new management alignment enables Whitney to focus on maintaining Vindicator's leadership position in food irradiation, while accelerating advocacy of the irradiation process as a food safety tool. He will continue as Vindicator's chairman and chief executive, while relinquishing his presidential responsibilities in the day-to-day operations of the company.
 Blain, president and managing shareholder of Blain & Cone, P.A., as well as a member of the Vindicator board, will direct all administrative functions of the company and continue as chairman of its executive committee. He will not function as the company's attorney or legal counsel, but will continue part-time with his independent law practice.
 Whitney said that Blain's appointment as president is to continue for six months to a year. One of Blain's responsibilities will be to seek a qualified candidate to assume the role of president.
 Blain said his interim role comes at a very critical time in Vindicator's growth. "The food industry is finally recognizing the tremendous value-added premium that irradiation can offer its products," he added.
 Blain has conducted a law practice in Tampa since 1965. Since 1978, he has been president and managing shareholder of Blain & Cone, a Tampa law firm specializing in water law and other environmental affairs. He is a member of the American Bar Association, the Florida Bar, and the Hillsborough County Bar Association.
