Latex Free Products

If you have an allergy to latex, here's a list of latex free products. I can tell you from experience, the stuff shows up in the most unlikely places.

I have a funny/scary latex allergy story to share.

I was having blood drawn, and I asked the technician to use a latex-free tourniquet. After finishing, she utters a loud, "Oh no, that was latex!" Then, maybe thinking I wouldn't have noticed, proceeds to tell me she used it over my sleeve anyway...while my sleeve was still rolled up to my shoulder! Some people have difficulty accepting fault, I guess.
