Powdered gloves will no longer be permitted for use in veterinary medicine beginning January 18, under a rule issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As previously reported in JAVMA and on the AVMA's social media channels, starting January 18, the FDA will institute a ban on all powdered patient examination gloves, powdered surgeon's gloves and absorbable powder for lubricating a surgeon's glove. The ban will impact both veterinary medicine and human medicine, according to FDA officials.
