FDA Warns of 9 Hand Sanitizer Products, May Contain Methanol
When the whole coronavirus pandemic started we were all in a panic because we couldn't find hand sanitizer anywhere. Now it's available again but we have to be careful because some products could contain a toxic substance. It's just one thing after another.
There are nine hand sanitizer products that you need to avoid.
According to the FDA, The products were manufactured by Eskbiochem SA de CV in Mexico, and they could contain methanol. Methanol can be toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested. The FDA says the chemical is not acceptable as a hand sanitizer.
The FDA has identified the following nine products which may contain methanol:
- All-Clean Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-002-01)
- Esk Biochem Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-007-01)
- CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-008-04)
- Lavar 70 Gel Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-006-01)
- The Good Gel Antibacterial Gel Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-010-10)
- CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-005-03)
- CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-009-01)
- CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-003-01)
- Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-001-01)
If you've come in contact with any of the products above, you'll want to seek medical attention.
I hope store owners are paying attention to this and they've got the non-toxic brand of hand sanitizer on their counters. I use that stuff all the time and pay no attention to what kind it is.
