The FDA says that the products manufactured by Eskbiochem SA de CV in Mexico, may contain methanol, which can be toxic if absorbed through the skin or absorbed. In a statement on Friday, the FDA said it has identified the following Eskbiochem sanitizer: All-Clean Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-002-01) Esk Biochem Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-007-01) Cleancare NoGerm hand sanitizer advanced 75% alcohol (NDC: 74589-008-04) Lavar 70 disinfectant hand gel (NDC: 74589-006-01) the Good antibacterial gel hand sanitizer (NDC: 74589-010-10) Cleancare NoGerm advanced hand sanitizer 80% alcohol (NDC: 74589-005-03) Cleancare NoGerm advanced hand sanitizer 75% alcohol (NDC: 74589-009-01) Cleancare NoGerm advanced hand sanitizer 80% alcohol (NDC : 74589-003-01) hand Saniderm advanced sanitizer (NDC: 74589 -001-01) the FDA said it had disinfectant gel Lavar tested, and found that it contained 81% methanol. In addition, the agency said untested Cleancare germ disinfectant and contained 28% of methanol. Methanol – known also known as wood alcohol – “is not an acceptable part of hand sanitizers and should not be used because of its toxic effects,” the FDA said in its statement. If you have exposed these disinfectants, looking at the FDA recommended immediate treatment, as it is “crucial for the possible reversal of the toxic effects of methanol poisoning.” Side effects may “nausea, vomiting, headache, visual disturbances, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system and death,” the FDA said.

But Alexander Escamillo, a Eskbiochem representative, told the New York Times that Eskbiochem only learned the FDA warning on Monday. He also told the Times that a broker who does not work for Eskbiochem, “had access to our company” registered with the FDA, however, and also “registered our labels and shipped disinfectants.” He told the Times that Eskbiochem FDA had not registered and would take against the broker. “We would never do that, a toxic chemical harmful Send” Escamillo told the Times. As anyone who has been exposed to these products should seek treatment, the FDA says disinfectants children or teenagers accidentally swallow, that the substitute alcohol are drinking at risk of poisoning.
