The hearing is intended to look at ways to reduce potentially dangerous bacteria in antiseptic wipes, swabs, pads and solutions, that have been associated with recalls, and in some cases, possibly severe illness or death. Right now, this class of products is used to prep the skin before shots or surgeries, and are not required to be sterile.
