Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer recalled over potential toxic chemicals.

UVT Inc. is voluntarily recalling more than 38,000 liters of Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer due to the potential presence of methanol, according to an announcement posted by the Food and Drug Administration on Monday. The affected hand sanitizer includes lot number 0530 and an expiration date of 04/2022. The company said it is notifying its distributors and customers by phone calls, emails, and letters to arrange for replacement and destruction of the recalled products, according to the announcement.

The company recommends that all retailers and distributors of the product issue their own recall, and consumers with the recalled hand sanitizer should stop using it and return the product to its place of purchase. To date, UVT Inc. has not received any reports of adverse effects associated with the recall.

According to the FDA, methanol can be toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested.

“Although all persons using these products on their hands are at risk, young children who accidentally [sic] ingest these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk for methanol poisoning,” the company said.

Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system, or death. The FDA says that anyone who has been exposed to hand sanitizer products with methanol should seek immediate treatment and dispose of the product immediately in “appropriate hazardous waste containers.”
