Latex Warning

Tomorrow evening March 30, I will be attending a food policy conference.
At the conference I will be asking for total ban on the use of latex
(gloves and balloons) in the food handling industry (farms, restaurant
and stores, etc). As many of you know latex is classified as a Strong
Sensitizers, a hazardous material. According to a CFR (Code of Federal
Regulations) report, any hazardous material contacting food renders the
food adulterated and unfit for human consumption. Latex gloves and
balloons are hazardous material, therefore should not be used where food
is handled, processed or eaten.

    it’s scary to see a reaction on someone when you just touch them with the latex ring of your stethoscope, and they get a round ring of redness, blisters.
