FDA reiterates warning about dangerous alcohol hand sanitizers containing methanol
The agency has also taken additional action to help prevent certain hand sanitizers from entering the U.S. by placing them on import alert.
The FDA is proactively working with manufacturers to recall products and is encouraging retailers to remove products from store shelves and online marketplaces.
As part of these actions, a warning letter has been issued to Eskbiochem S.A. de C.V. for distributing product with undeclared methanol, unapproved claims including incorrectly stating FDA approval and improper manufacturing practices. ■
