Recall

Broncolin S.A. de C.V is voluntarily recalling all lots of Herbacil Antiseptic Hand Sanitizer 70% Alcohol to the consumer level. The products are being recalled due to the potential presence of methanol (wood alcohol).
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.” To date, Broncolin S.A. de C.V. has not received any reports of adverse events related to the product in question.
The product is an alcohol-based hand sanitizer used to reduce bacteria that potentially cause disease when soap and water are not available and is packaged in 4 bottle sizes; 4.22 fl. oz. (125ml), 8.4 fl. oz. (250 ml), 16.9 fl. oz. (500 ml) and 33.8 fl. oz. (1 Liter).
