MXL Comercial Hand Sanitizer Gel Recalled For Undeclared Methanol

Resource Recovery & Trading LLC is voluntarily recalling all of the lots of MXL Comercial Hand Sanitizer manufactured by MXL Comercial SA de CV because it contains methanol, or wood alcohol, and sub potency ethyl alcohol. Wood alcohol is toxic when absorbed through the skin and can cause symptoms ranging from headache, vomiting, and blurred vision. And if the alcohol in a hand sanitizer is sub potent, it will not be effective against pathogens. No reports of adverse events have been reported to the company to date in connection with this recalled product.

Drinking this product can lead to permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system, and death. Young children may accidentally ingest hand sanitizers. And some people use them as an alcohol substitute.

The recalled products include MXL Comercial Hand Sanitizer 70% Ethyl Alcohol Disinfectant Gel. It is packaged in 6.7 fluid ounce (200 ml) bottles. The UPC number on the product is 650240026020. Also recalled is Hand Sanitizer Non-sterile Solution 70% Topical Solution, which is packaged in 20 liter (5.28 gallon) plastic containers. The UPC number on the product is 37710600013.

These hand sanitizers were distributed in Alabama and Georgia at the consumer level from June 10, 2020 to June 20, 2020. If you purchased them, stop using them immediately and discard them in accordance with your local hazardous waste disposal ordinances. You can also take it back to the store where you purchased it for a full refund. The company is notifying distributors and customers by phone calls and emails and is arranging for the return and destruction of all recalled products.

If you used this product or any other product and have had health problems, see your doctor. You should then report those reactions to the FDA using their MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
