This has been a topic of discussion on the MTF FB group. I emailed Five Star and got the response below.

"StarSan was tested and approved for Ecoli and Staph which are both gram-positive bacteria aka larger bacteria. So short answer no we haven't officially tested for the kill rate on yeast bacteria and mold. However knowing that StarSan kills those two bacteria in an EPA good lab practice testing I would be confident in it's effectiveness."

They never tested, just assumed.

Just wanted to point out that E. coli is a gram-negative bacteria and gram staining doesn't refer to size of bacteria.  A bit pedantic I know and doesn't change whether or not their product works, but Five Star reps should probably get that right given their line of products.
