Hand Sanitizers Marketed for Children, Packaged in Containers Resembling Food and Drink Recalled

On October 1, 2020, Ashtel Studios recalled six hand sanitizers because they are packaged in containers resembling food and drink pouches. 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 in September.

Recalled hand sanitizer products (see images) were distributed throughout the US and Canada and packaged in 0.84 fluid ounce pouches. They can be further identified by the following:
  • Product: PAW Patrol Hand Sanitizer. NDC: 70108-042-01
  • Product: JoJo Siwa Hand Sanitizer. NDC: 70108-044-01
  • Product: Hot Wheels Hand Sanitizer. NDC: 70108-045-01
  • Product: Barbie Hand Sanitizer. NDC: 70108-046-01
  • Product: Trolls Hand Sanitizer. NDC: 70108-047-01
  • Product: Minions Hand Sanitizer. NDC: 70108-043-01

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