FDA Wants Proof that Sanitizers Actually Work

The FDA isn’t saying that they don’t work, they are just asking manufacturers to provide proof that they actually do; proof that they are going to have a hard time providing because studies have shown that 1. the alcohol in the disinfectants has to be on the surface for much longer than it is in almost all instances and 2. germs and bacteria that aren’t killed produce super germs that are now immune.
