Latest Hand Sanitizer Recall Announced
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has had their hands full with hand sanitizer recalls over the past year, and it’s a trend that doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon.
The most recent example comes from the Dominican Republic manufacturer Ardil Commercial — in particular, their Limar Hand Sanitizer brand, which has been featuring a 4-oz container design that resembles a drinking bottle, Fox Business reports. To their credit, the manufacturer is taking accountability and are conducting a voluntary recall of the design across the United States.
While a great tool to combat bacteria and viruses, especially after washing hands, ingesting hand sanitizer can lead to alcohol toxicity, slurred speech, lack of coordination, drowsiness and even potentially-fatal comas, the FDA notes.
The product in question holds a May 22 expiration date and lot number 079932-4611-05-J. Any distributors or consumers that currently have it are encouraged to return the bottles to the original purchasing location.
This isn’t the first report on hand sanitizer recalls, and it’s unlikely to be the last. Here’s another recent example that was covered.
