FDA URGES COMPANY TO DO VOLUNTARY RECALL

Although the FDA cannot take any action at this time, they ARE urging consumers to stop using certain hand sanitizer products that may contain cancer-causing chemicals.

To identify the hand sanitizers they are saying we should stay away from including those that have been tested by the FDA and found to contain acetal, acetaldehyde, benzene, 1-propanol, and methanol.

  1. Consumers should check the label. If it says it contains methanol, do not use it. If the product has been tested and found to contain microbial contamination, and if you see a recall by a manufacturer or distributor.
  2. Also if it says that it is "Subpotent," it means that it has less than the required amount of ethyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, or benzalkonium chloride.
  3. If the product is made at the same facility as other products that have been tested by the FDA and were found to contain the above-mentioned chemicals.
  4. If the package resembles a food or beverage container that could present a risk of accidental ingestion, you should also not purchase the product.

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes.
