Albek de Mexico S.A. de C.V. Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of All Hand Sanitizers Within Expiry

Company Announcement

Albek de Mexico S.A. de C.V is voluntarily recalling all lots and all brands of hand sanitizer currently in US distribution to the consumer level. This recall is being initiated out of an abundance of caution due to detection of methanol in hand sanitizer samples manufactured by Albek when product was presented for import into the United States.

Risk Statement: Substantial methanol exposure could result in serious health effects (including nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, severe abdominal pain, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, nervous system damage) or death. Persons using methanol-based products on their hands may be at risk. Young children who accidently ingest them and adolescents and adults who drink such products are most at risk for methanol poisoning. To date, there have been no reports of serious adverse events related to the products in the scope of this recall.

The products are labeled for use as a hand sanitizer (or “antiseptic”) and are packaged for several nationwide distributors in a variety of formats as indicated in the table as follows:
