Aurelia Gloves responds to FDA ban on powdered surgical gloves  

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Aurora, IL - In a final ruling from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the use of powdered surgical and patient examination gloves will be banned in the U.S., effective January 18, 2017. In response, Aurelia Gloves, one of the largest glove manufacturers in the world, issued a statement that they would no longer sell their Vintage lightly powdered latex examination gloves and Indulgence latex powdered honeycomb textured latex examination gloves in the U.S. According to C.K. Tan, vice president, sales and marketing at Supermax Healthcare, the parent company of Aurelia Gloves: "We've been the preferred provider of high-quality examination gloves in North America for nearly 20 years. Although we'll be discontinuing two of our product lines in the U.S., we have an extensive line of innovative nitrile and latex powder free gloves that serve as excellent alternatives." Tan identified four Aurelia brands that can substitute for the company's discontinued products: Vibrant latex powder-free examination gloves, Refresh latex powder-free mint examination gloves, Sonic nitrile powder-free examination gloves, and Perform nitrile powder-free examination gloves. "Aurelia remains committed to serving the needs of our customers," Tan noted. "We will always strive to offer the highest levels of safety, comfort, quality and value to healthcare professionals everywhere."
