Beware of Latex Free Gloves

The warning message on the package of my latex free gloves.

Even though I'm not allergic to latex I try to stay away from it, because
I've heard that some people have all of the sudden become allergic. I
bought three packages of gloves that were brightly labeled on the front
they were latex free. A week later, I noticed that on the back of one of
the packages there was a warning: This product contains a chemical
known to the state of California to cause cancer. Trying to stay away
from latex, I ended up buying gloves made of cancer causing vinyl.
Note to self...Stay away from latex, vinyl, not sure what else yet.

When I'm out shopping I read a lot of  labels, but the day I bought the
gloves I didn't read the labels thoroughly enough. Oh well, next time I'll
try to protect my health a little better.
