Avoid Using These 9 Hand Sanitizers
Some of these products could be toxic.
Over the past few months we have all paid extra close attention to making sure our hands are clean. We've been told that if we all wash our hands with soap and frequently use hand sanitizer we can prevent the continue spread of COVID-19.
As far as the Hudson Valley goes we've done a great job at getting the spreading of the virus under control and I think that all we need to do is continue doing what we've been doing because it's working, the only thing you need to be aware of is some of the hand sanitizers that are being sold in some stores could actually be extremely harmful to us according to News 10.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has put out a warning for us to stop using nine specific hand sanitizer products that have been found to contain a substance, methanol, which can be potentially fatal if it's absorbed through the skin. The FDA said, "Methanol is not an acceptable ingredient for hand sanitizers and should not be used due to its toxic effects."
All 9 of the products are made by the same company, Esk Biochem, located in Mexico. Here are the products to avoid using or purchasing:
