Recall of hand sanitisers (Feb to April 2021)

Wholesale-level recall of hand sanitisers due to detection of acetaldehyde and/or methanol at levels above the pharmaceutical pharmacopoeia limit.

  • The Food and Drug Administration has updated its recall list to include 149 different hand sanitizers due to failing standards on randomized tests.
  • Many products have tested positive for methanol, a type of alcohol that is toxic when ingested and may be harmful when applied directly to the skin. A recent announcement from the agency also indicates some hand sanitizers make use of 1-propanol, a toxin that may affect the central nervous system after prolonged exposure.
  • Others have indicated insufficient levels of alcohol overall, rendering those sanitizers ineffective per FDA guidelines

The FDA is continually updating their warning list of National Drug Code registry numbers (NDC numbers) for hand sanitizers containing methanol, 1-propanol, as well as products that have too-low alcohol contents. As of August 13, the FDA’s recall list includes the following 149 variations, where you may also view NDC numbers. Recent additions include the following:
