Eagle leads the US glove industry in the supply and scientific research of disposable gloves which have not, until recently, been considered a food safety issue. However, ongoing scientific research continues to highlight an increasing number of areas of concern in the disposable glove manufacturing processes, which could pose a threat to the US food industry.
Eagle Protect has developed a proprietary third-party Fingerprint Glove Analysis as a voluntary added compliance, to ensure our gloves are made in clean, well-run factories, free of any type of contamination. This disposable glove analysis also ensures consistency in raw material makeup to the original food safe specifications, and certifies Eagle products safe for food contact. Ultimately, it enhances our customers food safety programs, and brand reputation.
Unlike packaging, which is subject to FDA regulation and monitoring, and included in the FSMA, disposable glove production is generally self-regulated. FDA compliance is only required for an outline of the glove’s ingredients, not the final product.
Few controls are required for glove manufacturing relating to the reliability of raw materials, manufacturing processes or the factory compliance of the actual gloves you receive from the factory.
