Mexican Hand Sanitizer Import Alert [US]

US FlagUS/Silver Spring: Logo - The US Food and Drug Administration ("FDA")The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”), a Silver Spring, Maryland-based statutory regulatory and food safety authority, places all Alcohol-based Hand Sanitizers manufactured in Mexico on a countrywide Import Alert to help stop products that appear to be in violation from entering the United States until the FDA is able to review the products’ safety.

This Import Alert was initiated due to a sharp increase in Hand Sanitizer products manufactured in  Mexico that were labeled to contain Ethanol (also known as Ethyl Alcohol) as an active agent but instead tested positive for Methanol contamination. Methanol, or Wood Alcohol, is an industrial-use substance that can be toxic when absorbed through the skin and life-threatening when ingested and can result in Nausea, Vomiting, Headache, Blurred Vision, Permanent Blindness, Seizures, Coma, permanent damage to the Nervous System and/or Death.
