Latex Gloves

Don't Be Misled By "Latex Free" Claims

by U.S. Food and Drug Administration

If you’re allergic to natural rubber latex, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has good news for you: in the future, you are less likely to be misinformed about the absence of this allergen in such products as medical devices. To avoid false assurances about this hazard to your health, FDA is recommending to manufacturers to stop using the labels “latex-free” or “does not contain latex.”
