This product is a replacement following an FDA rule effective 1/18/2017. 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. Consequently, FDA is banning these products. We are substituting powdered gloves with comparable non-powdered gloves.InstaGard® Synthetic Examination Gloves are made from polyvinyl chloride or PVC. They can be used for short-term clinical applications with low risk of exposure to potentially infectious materials, such as changing bed linens and transporting patients. InstaGard® synthetic gloves are a cost-effective glove for general patient care.
