Cleaner Hand Sanitizer Recalled

On September 8, 2020, DMM VISSION, S.A. DE C.V. recalled five lots of Cleaner Hand Sanitizer because they 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 lots of Cleaner Hand Sanitizer (see images) were distributed nationwide and come in clear plastic bottles with white tops. They can be further identified by the following information:
  • Size: 1200mL. Lot #: LC2020407. NDC: 75799-000-04. Expiration: 4/2021
  • Size: 500mL. Lot #: LC2020408. NDC: 75799-000-02. Expiration: 4/2021
  • Size: 1200mL. Lot #: LC2020502. NDC: 75799-000-04. Expiration: 5/2021
  • Size: 1200mL. Lot #: LC2020504. NDC: 75799-000-04. Expiration: 5/2021
  • Size: 1200mL. Lot #: LC2020507. NDC: 75799-000-04. Expiration: 5/2021

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." 

All individuals who have recalled DMM Vission hand sanitizer should immediately stop using it and return it to the place of purchase.

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.
