Eskbiochem Saniderm Hand Sanitizer Recalled For Wood Alcohol

Eskbiochem Saniderm hand sanitizer is being recalled because it contains wood alcohol, which can be absorbed through the skin. This exposure “could result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death. Although all persons using these products on their hands are at risk, young children who accidentally ingest these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk for methanol poisoning,” according to the FDA recall notice.

Saniderm has initiated a voluntary recall of all its products produced by Eskbiochem SA de CV with a “Made in Mexico” origin. There have been no reports of adverse events related to this product.

The recalled product is a hand sanitizer and is packaged in 1-liter plastic bottles with an orange twist-top cap. The lot number on the Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer is 53131626.

The sanitizer is packaged in a clear bottle with a back side label that states “Made in Mexico” and “Produced by Eskbiochem SA de CV.” The sanitizer was distributed in Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey on April 15, 2020.
