The list of hand sanitizers on the “do-not-use” list keeps growing. The FDA continues to warn consumers not to use 176 hand sanitizer products due to potential methanol contamination. The FDA says the recalled hand sanitizer products are considered unsafe due to methanol contamination or because they contain low levels of ethyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol, which are active ingredients in hand sanitizer products. CDC reported adverse events associated with the listed hand sanitizer products, including adults and children who ingested products contaminated with methanol that led to blindness, hospitalizations, and death. New products are added to the list very frequently. The investigation by the FDA into the use of methanol in hand sanitizers is ongoing. @ https://www.ksat.com/news/local/2020/09/11/176-hand-sanitizers-recalled-after-reports-of-blindness-and-hospitalizations-fda-reports/?outputType=amp
