A certain brand of hand sanitizer has been flagged by Health Canada for having ingredients that “are not acceptable for use.”
The health authority says in a statement that the following hand sanitizer is made with ethanol and denaturants that “may pose health risks.”

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