Why Delta Zero is Necessary for Your Food Safety Program

“Disposable gloves represent public health issues for glove users and food entities that rely on gloves for safe operation.”
- Barry Michaels, IAFP 2022  

Delta Zero nitrile gloves verified against contamination Food Safety Summit

Disposable gloves are a proven food safety risk. Of 2,800 new and unused food and medical gloves independently tested, 50% were found to have human fecal indicators, with 250 different viable microbial species on both the interior and exterior glove surfaces including E. coli, Listeria and more.


Why Glove Contamination Occurs

FDA (21 CFR 177) compliance for food handling is a one-off test with no expiration date. FDA glove food compliance focuses on chemical migration tests only. Gloves are not tested for bioburden, cleanliness or performance.
