It wasn't too long ago that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued out a warning about hand sanitizers that are dangerous. Now, the FDA has issued another warning about a new batch of sanitizers.
Back at the end of June, the FDA announced a bunch of hand sanitizers were deemed "toxic" to use, and should be avoided. Now, the FDA has announced another five more hand sanitizers to add to that list, as all of the hand sanitizers contain methanol, which the FDA says isn't safe ingredient. "Consumers who have been exposed to hand sanitizer containing methanol should seek immediate treatment, which is critical for potential reversal of toxic effects of methanol poisoning. said the FDA
The FDA also said that people should avoid all hand sanitizers that have been manufactured in Mexico in general. "Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death." In the entirety of this article, you will find all of the new hand sanitizers the FDA has deemed toxic. For more information, check out the FDA website here.
