Just what the manufacturers need, an FDA order to run a bunch of expensive tests to prove that the anti microbial chemicals are safe in hand soap. Fairer would be to require the FDA to run some tests proving the stuff is harmful. The soaps have been on the market for 30 years or more and in all that time nobody has been hurt enough to sue.
I'm neutral on this one, I figure no germ can stand up to plain old soap or detergent and hot water. So I don't buy anti microbial things. I'm not deep enough into chemistry to really know one way or the other. But I have noticed the tendency to label ordinary things hazardous material. Even solid brass castings. So I'm a little suspicious of the new born discovery of hazards lurking in something that's been on the market for years and years.
