Hand Sanitizer Labeled as "Edible" Recalled

On September 3, 2020, CorgioMed LLC recalled one lot of Leafree Instant Hand Sanitizer Aloe Vera because they are labeled "edible alcohol." Hand sanitizers can be toxic if ingested, and can cause lack of coordination, slowed or slurred speech, drowsiness, coma, or death. Children may also experience decreased blood sugar which may lead to death. Alcohol consumption during pregnancy can lead to birth defects and developmental disabilities, and consumption during nursing can also lead to impaired development. 

The FDA warned first consumers about hand sanitizers that are packaged in food and drink containers earlier this month.

Recalled Leafree Instant Hand Sanitizer Aloe Vera products (see image) were distributed nationwide. They are packaged in 100mL, 300mL, and 500mL bottles with UPCs of 6970495860325, 69705860318, and 6970495860301, respectively.

All individuals who have recalled CorgioMed products should immediately stop using it and return it to the place of purchase.
