I am on probation with random drug & alcohol screening. My color (the method of randomization) hasn't been called yet, so I haven't gone for my first screening yet. I was not informed that this would be part of the test panel. I have been doing some research and have found that I could test positive for incidental alcohol contact- hand sanitizer, cold medicine, gasoline, etc. I'm concerned that if this is sprung on me I won't pass. Would my probation officer have to inform me of the test, as well as advise me to stay away from incidental exposure or could this test be sprung on me? What is my recourse if I test positive from incidental exposure?
