FDA Looks at Banning Powdered Gloves...

Several years ago we went to Nitrile gloves in my office.

We had a staff member with a latex allergy as well as more and more patients marking "latex allergy" on their health histories.

Due to those 2 factors, we just did away with using them in my office.  It seemed a prudent decision at the time, now over 8 years ago.

Today I read from the  Washington Post that the FDA is considering banning powdered gloves completely.

If you are interested in the story, you can read it here.
