Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer Recalled For Undeclared Methanol

With all the focus on using hand sanitizers during the pandemic, this recall of Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer is of interest. This product contains methanol (wood alcohol) that is toxic when absorbed through the skin.

Substantial methanol exposure can result in these health issues: nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system, or death. All people using this product are at risk, but young children and adolescents and adults who drink it as an alcohol substitute are at most at risk for methanol poisoning. There have been no reports of adverse reactions received by the company to date in connection with this issue.

The company is recalling 38,730 liters of the hand sanitizer. The recalled product is sold as a hand sanitizer and is packaged in 1-liter plastic bottles. It is Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer with lot number 0530 and expiration date 04/2022. It was sold nationwide at the consumer level. UVT, INC., the manufacturer, is notifying its distributors and customers by phone calls, emails, and letter. They are ensuring that all product is destroyed and replaced.

If you purchased this hand sanitizer, don’t use it. Throw it away in your city or county’s hazardous waste disposal, or take it back to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have used this product and have experienced health problems, see your doctor. You can report problems to the FDA through the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting system either online, by regular mail, or by fax.
