Be prepared for California latex glove ban

Distributors who sell disposable latex gloves in California should know of that state’s impending ban on latex glove use for restaurants, food service operations, and retail food establishments.

Steve Godziszewski, an auto-body repair veteran of four decades, tells Automotive News how he never wore disposable gloves—until one day he caught his left hand on a battery cable and tore off a fingernail. He bandaged it and went back to work, but soon it was infected and doctors eventually had to remove part of his finger.

Medical Gloves Defined

Exam-grade gloves, often referred to as medical gloves, were originally designed for non-surgical medical procedures. They differ from industrial-grade gloves due to one factor: rigorous factory-level testing. This testing is based on acceptable quality limits (AQL) set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. An AQL limit sets a standard for how many gloves within a batch can fail testing. A low AQL (meaning a small number of defective gloves) for exam-grade gloves is necessary to ensure the glove is of a high enough quality that it can provide the proper barrier protection against extreme risks.
