Latest News:  Gelbac T Antibacterial Handgel Recalled
(Date Posted: 8/10/2020)

On August 6, 2020, Incredible Products Sa De Cv recalled Gelbac T Antibacterial Handgel because it may contain methanol, which is toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested.

The FDA warned first consumers about the possible presence of methanol in certain hand sanitizers in June and has continued to update consumers about potentially-affected products and recalls.

Recalled Gelbac T Antibacterial Handgel was packaged in clear plastic bottles and can be identified by the following information:

  • Sizes: 4.2oz, 33.8oz
  • Lot code: 001
Consumers who have this product should immediately stop using it and can contact Incredible Products Sa De Cv at gcigdl@yahoo.com.mx and dalp_07@hotmail.com with questions about refunds.  

Methanol, sometimes called wood alcohol, is poisonous. Methanol exposure through the skin or by ingestion can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death. The agency warned that consumers who have been exposed to hand sanitizer containing methanol to "seek immediate treatment, which is critical for potential reversal of toxic effects of methanol poisoning." 

Methanol is a different form of alcohol than ethyl alcohol. Hand sanitizer containing at least 60% ethyl alcohol is recommended by the CDC for disinfecting hands when soap and water are not available, and is generally considered safe when used as directed. See the CDC's website for more information about using hand sanitizer.
