FDA Warning Some Hand Sanitizers Can Be Toxic
We've all been using copious amounts of hand sanitizer lately because of the COVID-19 pandemic. First, it was extremely hard to find and now there is a warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that some of the hand sanitizers could be potentially fatal when it is absorbed through the skin or ingested.
According to KDVR, the FDA has listed the nine hand sanitizers that could possibly be toxic from the manufacturer, Esk Biochem.
- All-Clean Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-002-01)
