Mystic Shield Protection Topical Solution Recalled For Methanol

The recalls of hand sanitizers because they contain methanol, or wood alcohol, continues. Now Transliquid Technologies LLC is voluntarily recalling Mystic Shield Protection Topical Solution because it contains methanol. The product was sold in California, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Texas at the retail  level.

The product was manufactured by Mystic Intl S.A. de C.V. in Mexico City. It was packaged in 8.45 ounce (250 ml) bottles. The firm’s independent testing revealed the presence of this toxin.

Wood alcohol can be absorbed through the skin and cause serious health problems. Drinking it as an alcohol substitute or via accidental ingestion can cause “nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system, or death.”

This product is an alcohol-based hand sanitizer used when soap and water aren’t available. The blue or green labeled bottle with a white transparent cap has a blue or green label that states “Mystic Shield Protection.” It was sold between May 21, 2020 and June 30, 2020 to select wholesale and retail customers in those states named above. The company has accounted for and prevented distribution of a “substantial majority” of the product, but some bottles may still be in consumers’ homes.

Check to see if you have this product in your home. If you do, stop using it immediately and discard it according to your community’s hazardous waste rules. You can also take it back to the place of purchase for a refund, or contact Transliquid Technologies for return.

If you have used this product and have experienced health problems, see your ┬ádoctor, then report it to the FDA. You can use the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting system online, through the mail, or fax.
