FDA Warns: Do Not Use These 9 Hand Sanitizers as They Are Highly Toxic
4After testing here’s what they found
The FDA isn’t just arbitrarily calling out the products but have done so after testing them. The authority tested products called Lavar Gel and CleanCare NO Germ and found out both did not conform to standards. Laver Gel contained 80% methanol which is extremely dangerous. Moreover, the product did not contain any ethyl alcohol which is the most popular ingredient and type of alcohol used in most hand sanitizers. No Germ contained 28% methanol.
5The company was asked to removes products but they refused
In an advisory, the FDA declared “Methanol is not an acceptable ingredient for hand sanitizers and should not be used due to its toxic effects.” In fact, FDA officials contacted the Eskbiochem company soon after the tests and asked them to remove their hand sanitizer range from the market, but the company is yet to comply with the order. This means, when you’re shopping for hand sanitizers, check out the manufacturers name and avoid sanitizers of Eskobiochem as blacklisted by the FDA.
6Stop using products by Eskobiochem
If you have mistakenly purchased any Eskbiochem products, the FDA advises you to stop using it immediately. Do not flush it down the toilet or your kitchen sink. It is a hazardous material and needs to be disposed of in a container for toxic waste. The FDA has also made out a list of the potentially toxic products.
