FDA Toxic Hand Sanitizer List Grows To 100


The United States Food & Drug Administration is continuing to crack down on hand sanitizers that may contain Methanol.

FDA is warning consumers and health care providers that the agency has seen a sharp increase inhand 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.

The list has now grown to over 140 different products, most produced in Mexico. Do yourself a favor and please check the list below to see if you have any of the products deemed TOXIC/POTENTIALLY TOXIC.
