Hand Sanitizer Recalled Because Packaging Resembles Water Bottle

On March 17, 2021, PNHC, LLC d/b/a Heal the World recalled all lots of Heal the World hand sanitizer because the product is packaged in containers resembling water bottles. 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 first warned consumers about hand sanitizers that are packaged in food and drink containers in September of 2020.

Recalled Heal the World hand sanitizer products (see images) were distributed throughout the US and can be further identified by the following:

  • Product: Heal the World Hand Sanitizer
  • Size: 9.6 fl. oz.
  • NDC: 73333-285-01
  • Lot numbers: SAA21, SAA24, SAA27, SAA22, SAA23, SAA29, SAA26, SAA28, SAA25, SAA32, SAA55, SAA56, SAA44, SAA60

All individuals who have recalled Heal the World products should immediately stop using them and return them to the place of purchase.
