Chometz Alert on Restore Restore Exam Gloves with Oatmeal

April 16, 2019 from cRc:

The NorthShore University HealthSystem system currently uses disposable gloves which have oat powder added to the inside to help maintain moisture on the hands of the employees who wear gloves many hours a day. The oat powder is assumed to be chametz and edible, and therefore Jewish healthcare workers should not use these gloves on Pesach, as doing so would be considered to be having hana’ah (benefit/pleasure) from chametz. It is permitted for Jewish patients to be treated by healthcare workers wearing these gloves on Pesach, and those who want to be extra careful about avoiding chametz should wash their hands afterwards.

The brand is believed to be Restore.
