FDA bans powdered medical gloves


The FDA has determined that powdered surgeon’s gloves, powdered patient examination gloves, and absorbable powder for lubricating a surgeon’s glove present an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury and that the risk cannot be corrected or eliminated by labeling or a change in labeling. 

Consequently, the FDA is banning these devices. 

I noticed that the rule was proposed back in March but it was officially ruled on today and becomes effective on January 18, 2017.
