Ethylene Oxide Inside Children’s Covid19 Rapid Antigen Lateral Flow Test Kits

We’ve now received a response on this from UK Peer of the Realm Lord Bethell. Despite the urgency, this has taken two months:

This evening, as a concerned parent and following advice from our local school, we’ve contacted our MP Angela Eagle, Simone White, Deputy Director for Children at Wirral Council and Public Health England (North West).

The same email has been sent to all three:

Subject: Cancer-causing ethylene oxide inside children’s Covid19 test kits

Dear (name),


Your name was helpfully passed to me on 23rd March by xxxxxxx when I raised via email the above pressing issue as a concerned parent.


In order to hasten the process and to avoid repetition, please proceed to the following two web links in order to appraise yourself of the details under discussion here:


1. https://wirralinittogether.blog/2021/03/20/has-your-child-brought-this-nhs-covid19-testing-kit-home-from-school/

2. https://wirralinittogether.blog/2021/03/24/cancer-causing-ethylene-oxide-inside-childrens-covid19-test-kits-theres-no-acknowledgement-of-any-danger-but-weve-had-a-response-from-the-school-to-our-concerns/

On the face of it, the threat to children appears to be very serious, but thus far has neither been acknowledged nor acted upon directly, nor given the level of importance it warrants.


I would be most grateful if you could contact me as soon as possible with your proposals,

Many thanks,


Paul Cardin

  3. L K Arnold says:

    I’ve put a FOI request to the UK MHRA about safety tests of swabs, thresholds of EO debris, random safety testing and frequency of use safety testing. In 20 days we should have a response. EO is a gas. The swabs go through aeration to reduce debris after treatment with EO. There will be a limit ppm allowed for that debris but I cannot find that answer. However, and like with all toxic chemicals, limited or ‘one off’ exposure is not harmful, but repeated use, daily or biweekly exposure to the internal mucus membranes is likely to cause harm. We need to hold the government accountable for due diligence testing of swabs and set limits for frequency of safe use.
