About Listeria Poisoning:
Listeria monocytogenes, the bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning), most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges).

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. Contact the retailer for a refund or replacement. Wash your hands, contaminated preparation surfaces, cutlery and serving dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry. Contact your MD immediately if you experience Listeriosis symptoms.

You can learn about Listeriosis from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IScAKJ

Bodico Hand Sanitizer Recall [Canada]

Canada HCSC RecallCanada/Ottawa: Health Canada recalls some Bodico Hand Sanitizer due to undeclared methanol hazard; two deaths reported. HCSC: http://ht.ly/q9RmZ

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/36469a-eng.php

Additional information:Bodico Hand Sanitizer
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following Personal Care Products are subject to this recall:

  • Bodico Hand Sanitizer, 8 fluid ounce pump container, lot B9002
  • Bodico Hand Sanitizer with Aloe and Vitamin E, 8 fluid ounce pump container, lot B9001

Health Canada reminds all consumers that the labels of hand sanitizers advise external use only and as such, the product should never be ingested. Testing undertaken by the province of Ontario’s Centre of Forensic Sciences of two bottles of Bodico Hand Sanitizer associated with the deaths found the product contained methanol, an undeclared ingredient, and not ethyl alcohol, the active ingredient actually listed for the product. Methanol is a highly toxic alcohol that, if ingested, can cause blindness or death. High amounts of methanol applied to the skin can cause irritation and inflammation.

Health Canada is working with the company that makes Bodico Hand Sanitizer and is in the process of independently testing additional samples of the product.
