The FDA Warns To Avoid Hand Sanitizer Made By This Manufacturer

The FDA is warning people about a potentially life-threatening ingredient used in a handful of hand sanitizers that are available.

People should stay away from any hand sanitizer manufactured by Eskbiochem because it contains methanol. It's an alcohol that is commonly used in industrial pesticides and alternative fuel sources, and is toxic when absorbed through the skin. Continued use may cause nausea, vomiting, permanent blindness, seizures, or death.

The FDA advises consumers to "stop using these hand sanitizers and dispose of them immediately."
