FDA expands potentially dangerous hand sanitizers list to 75 products


Share post:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified 75 hand sanitizers that have tested positive for methanol and wood alcohol contamination.

Methanol has been listed as a dangerous substance used as an ingredient in the hand sanitizers mixture and can be toxic when absorbed through the skin.

Nine potentially dangerous hand sanitizers were first identified in a variety of products in June.

According to the FDA, “hand sanitizers that are sold or offered for sale with false and misleading, unproven claims that they can prevent the spread of viruses such as COVID-19, including claims they can provide prolonged protection.” 

Some of the hand sanitizers have reportedly been falsely labeled as “FDA-approved”

A full list can be found on the FDA’s website.
