What’s the Problem?

This FDA Warning affects the following products:

These hand sanitizers are dangerous and should not be used because they contain methanol, a chemical used as an industrial solvent, pesticide, and alternative fuel source, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Methanol is toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested, and may cause side effects including:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • headache
  • blurred vision
  • permanent blindness
  • seizures
  • coma
  • permanent damage to the nervous system
  • death

Although anyone who uses methanol hand sanitizer is at risk of these effects, those who ingest the product are most at risk for methanol poisoning, FDA said.

The affected hand sanitizers were manufactured in Mexico by Eskbiochem SA de CV. FDA has contacted the company, requesting that it recall the sanitizers and remove them from the U.S. market immediately.

If you purchased any of the hand sanitizers that are implicated in the FDA Warning, you should stop using them “… and dispose of them immediately in appropriate hazardous waste containers,” the agency said. “Do not flush or pour these products down the drain.”
