On June 26, 2020, Saniderm initiated a recall for its Advanced Hand Sanitizer product. It is packaged in a 1 liter clear bottle with an orange twist-top cap, lot number 53131626, and manufactured date of April/1/20. “Made in Mexico” and “Produced by: Eskbiochem SA de CV” should be present on the back label.

The affected product is being recalled due to the potential presence of methanol. This recall is being issued due to the recent warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advising consumers to not purchase or use potentially toxic hand sanitizer manufactured by Eskbiochem in Mexico.

Per Saniderm’s recall announcement:

Risk Statement: Substantial methanol exposure ‘could result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death. Although all persons using these products on their hands are at risk, young children who accidentally ingest these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk for methanol poisoning.’

The affected product was distributed in Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey on April 15, 2020. Saniderm has begun notifying distributors and customers by e-mail of the Advanced Hand Sanitizer recall. All consumers that have the bottle in question should immediately stop use and dispose in appropriate hazardous waste containers.
