Genius Idea: FDA Hopes to Ban Powdered Surgical Gloves

Glove slap.The horror!In a world where a camel toe ectomy is considered a high priority for the modern woman, the US FDA is hard at work protecting the public from the horrors of powdered surgical gloves.

In March of 2016, the FDA announced a proposal to ban powdered gloves from the market due to what they claim to be an, “Unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury to health care providers.”

Apparently, that doctor glove snap is deadly.

The Director of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health Jeffery Shuren explained in the ban proposal that, “This ban is about protecting patients and health care professionals from a danger they might not even be aware of. We take bans very seriously and only take this action when we feel it’s necessary to protect the public health.”

The worry is that the powders used could cause allergic reactions to those allergic to the powder.The age old question...

Yes, we second that eye-roll.

Simply labeling the type of powders used on said gloves is apparently not enough to appease the FDA, as the risk of misreading outweighs any belief in the intelligence of citizenry.

Enjoy your weekend.

    What came first the chicken or the FDA? Neither. First came a sheeple so scared to care for themselves they gave away their chance at choice by allowing a BIG GOVERNMENT to reign over them.
