Public Citizen supports the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) proposed rule that would ban all powdered surgeon’s and patient examination gloves. We strongly disagree with how long this proposal has taken to be put forth. FDA’s history of past, inexcusable and dangerous delays is cause for concern about how promptly this proposed ban will be finalized.
