FDA Bans Powdered Gloves; Do Not Use After January 18

The Federal Register on Dec. 19, 2016, published its final rule establishing the Food and Drug Administration’s ban on powdered surgical and exam gloves. The FDA says powdered gloves are an adulterated product and are unsafe for use. This ban takes effect in 30 days. Unfortunately, the ban’s effective date also applies to end-users who have already purchased and are using powdered gloves. These gloves may not be used after January 18, 2017 per the FDA and are subject to enforcement action. Powdered gloves represents a small percentage of the current exam glove marketplace and there are many high-quality powder-free gloves available as alternatives. The staff at Association Gloves, which is endorsed by VDA Services, is prepared to help you find a powder-free latex, nitrile or chloroprene glove that will satisfy your unique needs. Please contact Association Gloves at 877-484-6149 for assistance selecting a new glove. Free samples are available.

If you wish to read the rationale behind the ban and further details, please see the Final Rule in the Federal Register https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2016-12-19/pdf/2016-30382.pdf.
