Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) opened a comment period on a rule that would require manufacturers to prove the efficacy of soaps and body washes containing antibacterial compounds.
As controversy over the widespread use of antibacterial chemicals in consumer products grows, the FDA noted the following concerns, among others:
The proposed rule does not cover the use of hand sanitizers. In fact, the FDA recommends the using alcohol-based hand sanitizers with at least 60 percent alcohol if soap and water are not available for hand-washing. Unlike antibacterial chemicals, alcohol kills germs on contact without creating drug resistance.
Prevention of disease is important, and promoting commercial use of potentially damaging compounds is dangerous. If you are injured by a hazardous product, seek reputable legal counsel in North Carolina.
