Hey New Englanders… More Hand Sanitizers Have Been Found To Be Toxic
Remember when we told you about nine hand sanitizers that are toxic because they could contain poisonous methanol? Click here if you haven't seen the information, yet. The Food and Drug Administration has put five more to the list, according to the FDA's official website. All of them were reportedly manufactured in Mexico.
Newsweek says methanol, or wood alcohol, can be deadly if it is "digested" or "absorbed through the skin."
Check to see if you have any of these dangerous hand sanitizers that have been added to the list.:
(1) Antiseptic Alcohol 70% Topical Solution, made by Soluciones Cosmeticas.
(2) Bersih Hand Sanitizer Gel.
(3) Britz Hand Sanitizer.
(4) Grupo Insoma's Hand Sanitizer Gel.
(5) Transliquid Technologies' Mystic Shield Protection.
If you have any of these sanitizers, the FDA warns against flushing them down the toilet or pouring them into a drain. The agency says to put them in hazardous waste containers, instead.
