FDA Issues Ban on Triclosan, CDC Continues to Provide Guidance Throughout Zika Outbreak
The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) issued its final ruling on Sept. 2 stating that certain consumer antiseptic wash products can no longer be marketed. The rule applies to 19 specific ingredients, including triclosan and triclocarban, and is specific to products that are intended for use with water and rinsed off after use. 
 
Triclosan and triclocarban, along with the other 17 common active ingredients that have been banned, did not demonstrate effectiveness over plain soap and are not safe for long-term daily use. 
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its guidance for pregnant women and women of reproductive age regarding Zika virus transmission in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Transmission is no longer active in the Wynwood area of Miami; however, the active area of transmission has grown to 4.5 square miles from the original 1.5 square-mile area where Zika was first detected in Miami.
