June 29, 2020: FDA Issues Update on Eskbiochem Hand Sanitizer Products and Recalls

FDA Eskbiochem Hand Sanitizer Recall Update News – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has published an update on the Eskbiochem hand sanitizer recall due to undeclared methanol in various hand sanitizer products.

The FDA’s last update was issued on June 19, 2020.

FDA Eskbiochem Hand Sanitizer Recall Update Information

Saniderm initiated a recall on June 26, 2020 and UVT, Inc. followed suit on June 29. Both Saniderm and UVT issued recalls for hand sanitizer packaged in 1-liter plastic bottles, with labels stating “Made in Mexico” and “Produced by: Eskbiochem SA de CV.”

The joint recall include the following:

  • The UVT hand sanitizer is labeled with lot number 0530 and an expiration date of 04/2022.
  • The Saniderm Products hand sanitizer is labeled with lot number 53131626 and “Manufactured on April/1/20.”

The FDA recommends consumers stop using these hand sanitizers immediately and dispose of them in appropriate hazardous waste containers. Do not flush or pour these products down the drain.

About Methanol Poisoning

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adverse health effects from methanol poisoning may not become apparent until after an asymptomatic period of 1 to 72 hours. Methanol’s toxicity is due to its metabolic products. The by-products of methanol metabolism cause an accumulation of acid in the blood (metabolic acidosis), blindness, and death. Initial adverse health effects due to methanol poisoning include drowsiness, a reduced level of consciousness (CNS depression), confusion, headache, dizziness, and the inability to coordinate muscle movement (ataxia). Other adverse health effects may include nausea, vomiting (emesis), and heart and respiratory (cardiopulmonary) failure. Prognosis is poor in patient/victims with coma or seizure and severe metabolic acidosis (pH <7). Early on after methanol exposure, there may be a relative absence of adverse health effects. This does not imply insignificant toxicity. Methanol toxicity worsens as the degree of metabolic acidosis increases, and thus, becomes more severe as the time between exposure and treatment increases.
