Health Canada Recall Of 51 Hand Sanitizers

Health Canada is recalling more than 50 hand sanitizers, that contain ingredients not acceptable for use, that may pose health risks. They are recalling hand sanitizers with unacceptable types of ethanol or denaturants (such as Ethyl Acetate and Methanol) which have not been approved for use in sanitizers in Canada, whose safety and efficacy have not been established.

Health Canada said possible reactions to the use of Ethyl acetate include dry skin, leading to irritation or cracking. And frequent use of hand sanitizer containing methanol may cause dermatitis, eye irritation, upper respiratory system irritation, and headaches.

Health Canada has an evolving list of 51 hand sanitizers that are currently being recalled and says Canadians should consult the list regularly.

Here is a sample from the current list as of this posting.

Health Canada says to stop using products listed, and if you have used any of these products and have health concerns to consult a health-care professional. Also, to help limit the spread of COVID-19, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizers if soap and water are not available.
