Does anyone have recommended brands for metal detectable bandages/band-aids that have good adhesion? Our current bandages (Medi-First) had mediocre adhesion and this is the number one complaint from the production operators.

 

Also what is the thought of having liquid-bandage in the first aid kit? It has been requested I am hesitant because an auditor or the FDA could view it as a potential contaminate or use as intentional adulturation.

We use North by Honeywell and have not experienced issues.  See attached picture

 

I would not use liquid bandage.  Risk of contamination from liquid bandage as well as staph from open wound.

We use bandages from uline:

they do the trick.

 

Do not use liquid bandage.  The team wants it because they think it will be easier but it will cause you more headaches then it is worth and if it isn't stolen from your first aid kit then it will be overused and you will be restocking it forever.  Stick with the bandages.  Safer for you, safer for your customer and cheaper over all.

The Uline ones are my favorite band-aid regardless of metal detect-ability.
