Health Canada issues recall for several hand sanitizers

Jul 28 2020, 8:33 am

Health Canada is recalling several brands of ethanol hand sanitizers it says may pose a health risk due to unauthorized ingredients.

The hand sanitizers were reportedly made with ethanol or denaturants that are not acceptable for use in hand sanitizers

“Denaturants are added to ethanol to make it unfit for human consumption and, therefore, to avoid the unintentional ingestion of hand sanitizers (particularly by children),” said Health Canada in its notice.

Consumers are also being reminded that the health agency has an updated list of hand sanitizers that contain technical-grade ethanol and are being recalled from the market because they are not compliant with federal regulations and may pose a risk to health.

The products found to contain unauthorized denaturants is below:
