Recall

Grupo Asimex de Mexico SA de CV is voluntarily recalling all lots of FLORANCE MORRIS Antiseptic Hand Sanitizer, 70% Alcohol, packaged in 8 fl oz bottles and 1L bottles to the consumer level. The products have the potential to contain methanol (wood alcohol) and be sub-potent for the ethanol content.
Risk Statement: The use of sub-potent hand sanitizer products can have adverse health consequences related to infections. Ethanol levels below the label claim can result in a lack of efficacy. In addition, methanol has inferior antiseptic properties compared to ethanol. Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death. Although all person using these products on their hands are at risk, young children who accidently 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, Grupo Asimex de Mexico SA de CV has not received reports of adverse events related to this recall.
