Gloves Compliant with Organic Regulations
Protect Your Products & CERTIFICATION
To validate claims of regulatory compliance, Eagle’s proprietary multi-layered Delta Zero™ glove analysis with third-party laboratory testing, verifies the absence of:
- Unsafe chemicals
- Microbial contamination
- Herbicides, pesticides & fungicides
- Any chemical or toxin that may be considered a food contaminant or adulterant as per the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act
To remain compliant with USDA National Organic Program guidelines, packaging material and storage containers must not contain synthetic fungicides, preservatives or fumigants. All of which are tested for by Eagle’s Delta Zero™* program.
Although not specifically mentioned in the organic certification process, auditors have requested additional regulatory single-use glove documentation from Eagle’s organic certified customers. Since gloves handle both certified ingredients and final products there is a risk of glove contamination and recall.
Glove factories are not subjected to rigorous FDA monitoring or scrutiny, and few controls are required in relation to the consistency of raw material ingredients, manufacturing processes, cleanliness and factory compliance. Delta Zero™ verified Eagle gloves mitigate these glove risks.
Eagle Protect™ is the only global glove supplier to test their gloves and verify their compliance with USDA Organic regulations.
Eagle’s glove analysis is a game-changer since gloves handle plants, ingredients and final products which create a risk of glove contamination and recall. It’s happened before.
Gloves Cause Cannabis Recall
A family-owned cannabis farm, Freya Farm, recalled its product because of O-Phenylphenol (OPP) contamination, a chemical known to cause cancer. The OPP transferred from the food-safe gloves used to handle their crop. Pesticide-driven fines can cost upwards of $200,000 dollars. They now protect their product with Eagle’s Delta Zero™ verified FineTOUGH nitrile gloves.
