Hand sanitizers recalled due to risk of toxic methanol | Burns & Wilcox

Dozens of hand sanitizer products are recalled or recommended for recall for potentially containing methanol, which can be toxic when ingested or absorbed through the skin. The FDA first alerts consumers in June about the presence of methanol, also known as wood alcohol, in nine products and expands the warning to include 59 types of hand sanitizer, all reportedly produced in Mexico. Health Canada also issues recalls for hand sanitizers potentially contaminated with methanol or ethyl acetate.
