California will say goodbye to latex gloves in January of 2020, as concerns grow surrounding allergies.

California is just one state looking to rid themselves of the gloves, joining Ohio, Arizona, Connecticut, Hawaii, Oregon and Rhode Island, all of whom have latex glove restrictions.

Although the latex gloves are being ushered out, foodservice workers can still wear latex-alternatives, including those made from nitrile, vinyl and polyethylene.

“Up to 6 percent of people in the United States are estimated to have latex allergies, including up to 17 percent of health care and food service workers, 11 percent of the elderly, up to 73 percent of children with spina bifida, and up to 34 percent of children who have had more than three surgical procedures,” the new legislation noted.
