ETG testing for DWAI and on probation? Do they have to inform me of what household goods to stay away from?

Asked about 1 year ago - Denver, CO

On Probation for DWAI and subject to random ETG testing. Does probation or testing facility have to inform me of what household goods to stay away from that could cause a false positive? Was told I would be on random UA's but never was told what to stay away from and was on UA's for pretrial and got random ETG's so not sure if I am getting just UA's or ETG's and if ETG's I should not be using goods such as Nyquil, Listerine, hand sanitizer, or things of that nature. I just don't want to get in any trouble. ANSWERS??
