Real Clean Hand Sanitizers Recalled For Potential Methanol

Real Clean Distribuciones SA de CV is voluntarily recalling four hand sanitizer products because they contain methanol, or wood alcohol, that is not declared on the label. Methanol exposure, even through the skin, can cause nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, blindness, and damage to the nervous system. Ingesting methanol can lead to seizures, coma, and death. There have been no reports of any adverse reactions received by the company to date.

The recalled products include Scent Theory Keep Clean Hand Sanitizer 70% Alcohol, sold in 16.9 ounce size, Keep It Clean Hand Sanitizer 70% Alcohol sold in 16.9 ounce bottles, Born Basic Anti-Bac Hand Sanitizer 70% Alcohol sold in 16.9 ounce packages, in 34 ounce packages, and 9.5 ounce packages, and Lux Eoi Hand Sanitizing Gel sold in 16.9 ounce packages. All were produced in Mexico.

Scent Theory and Born Basic hand sanitizer products are made by several different manufacturers in several different countries. Only those lots that were made by Real Clean Distribuciones SA de CV in Mexico are recalled.

You can see the long list of lot numbers for those products at the FDA web site. You can also see pictures of product labels there.

Real Clean Distribuciones is notifying its distributors by recall letter and consumers by this press release. The company is arranging for the return and refund of all recalled products.

If you purchased any of these hand sanitizers, stop using them immediately. Throw them away according to your locality’s hazardous waste disposal instructions or take them back to the store where you bought them for a full refund.

If you have used these products and have experienced health problems, you can report it to the FDA. Use the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting System. You should also contact your healthcare provider.
