STATES:  Nationwide
RECALL:   LABORATORIOS JALOMA S.A. de C.V.  recalling all lots and all bottle sizes of the Jaloma Antiseptic Hand Sanitizer, Ethyl Alcohol 62% With vitamin E. This recall has been initiated because FDA sampled the 500 mL product and found it to be contaminated with undeclared methanol (wood alcohol). Although the contamination was linked to the 500 mL product, due to the abundance of caution, Jaloma is recalling all lots of all sizes within expiry.
The products are distributed in a 4 fl oz (120 mL) Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) plastic bottle and a 16.9 fl oz (1.06 pt) (500 mL) PET or High-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic bottle.  Product is labeled with a red logo with the word Jaloma written in white letters.

Risk Statement: Substantial methanol exposure could result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, and 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. To date, LABORATORIOS JALOMA S.A. de C.V. has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
