Recall Notices: Hand Sanitizers with Methanol Contamination

By July 13, 2020 No Comments

We strongly encourage agencies and providers visit the FDA’s Website (link below) and review the FULL list of hand sanitizer recalls.

The FDA is warning consumers and health care providers that the agency has seen a sharp increase in hand sanitizer products that are labeled to contain ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol) but that have tested positive for methanol contamination. Methanol, or wood alcohol, is a substance that can be toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested and can be life-threatening when ingested.

There are products on the recall list which were sold in a number of WNY stores: https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/fda-updates-hand-sanitizers-methanol
