FAIRLAWN, Ohio (July 26)—Sam Eberts of Cardinal Health Inc. considers natural rubber latex regulations "overzealous," but if the industry must have new rules to protect against latex sensitivity, unified regulations among state and federal governments, the European Union and Malaysian Rubber Council are in order. The proposed ban or limitation on NR latex because of latex allergy concerns runs contrary to what the regulatory agencies should be advocating, Eberts, assistant general counsel for Cardinal Health, told participants at the International Latex Conference in Akron. Cardinal is the parent company of medical rubber glove maker Allegiance Corp.
