RecallFDA is warning consumers of 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 is not an acceptable ingredient for hand sanitizers and should not be used due to its toxic effects. Methanol can be particularly dangerous in small children if absorbed through the skin. If you have purchased hand sanitizer from an online or retail store and think it may contain methanol, do not use and discard the product. Learn more about hand sanitizers consumers should not use.
