starting in November some of our bills in Canada will be made out of polymer. Is this a risk to any allergies? With some people allergic to latex and other rubber, was this considered at all?

I did look at the web-site and didn't see anything, but I never sent an e-mail.

I may be wrong, but from what I remember working at a currency exchange booth while in university, Australia had this type of polymer bills already back then. Since they seem to have similar stats in terms of allergies as north america, there might be some info already on the topic?
