FDA Warns Makers of Four Hand Sanitizers, Two With Toxic Ingredient

Between February 18 and 25, 2021, the FDA issued warning letters to four sellers of hand sanitizers because laboratory tests showed that their products do not contain the amount of ethanol as stated on their labels. The products are FRAGRANCE FREE VLANC + PLUR HAND SANITIZER RINSE FREE FORMULATED WITH 70% OF ALCOHOL WITH ALOE VERA & GLYCERIN from Absara Cosmetics S.A.P.I DE C.V.; ARGENT Defense Group HAND SANITIZER from Asesores en Mantenimiento Hidraulico e Industrial, S.A. de C.V.; DAESI Hand Sanitizer from Yara Elena De La Garza Perez Nieto; and Hand+ Sanitizer Ethyl Alcohol Antiseptic 75% Topical Solution from Inovaker Lab S.A. de C.V. Two of these products were found to contain methanol, which is toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested.
