STATES: Alabama and Georgia between June 10, 2020 and June 20, 2020
RECALL: RESOURCE RECOVERY & TRADING LLC recalling all lots manufactured by MXL Comercial S.A. de C.V. of:
* HAND SANITIZER 70% Ethyl Alcohol Disinfectant Gel, packaged in 6.7 FL Oz. (200 ml) bottles, UPC 650240026020
* HAND SANITIZER Non-sterile Solution 70% Topical Solution, packaged in 20L (5.28 Gal) liter plastic containers, UPC 37710600013 A
The products are being recalled due to the potential presence of undeclared methanol (wood alcohol) and subpotency ethyl alcohol.
Risk Statement: The main concern with the use of hand sanitizer that is sub-potent for ethyl alcohol is the potential for decreased bactericidal and virucidal activity. Adverse health consequences can be related to increased infections. In addition substantial, undeclared methanol exposure, which has inferior antiseptic properties compared to ethanol, can 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. To date, RESOURCE RECOVERY & TRADING LLC has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
ACTION: Stop using products; return to place of purchase.
CONTACT: RESOURCE RECOVERY & TRADING LLC by phone (858) 964-4590 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Monday to Friday from 9:00 am and 3:00 pm Pacific Time. Consumers should contact their physician or healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking or using this drug product.
