Health Canada Recalls Hand Sanitizer Containing Industrial Grade Ethanol- Hand Sanitizer Poisoning on the Rise

That was NOT approved for use in hand sanitizers.. 
Ethanol is a dangerous chemical
Even though ethanol is very commonly used, it is a dangerous chemical. As previously mentioned, it is highly flammable; as such, it has exact flash points which are important to know when using it. While ethanol is consumed when drinking alcoholic beverages, consuming ethanol alone can cause coma and death. Ethanol may also be a carcinogenic; studies are still being done to determine this. However, ethanol is a toxic chemical and should be treated and handled as such, whether at work or in the home.
To those of you that have been bathing in this stuff...And I see you everywhere. Just slathering your hands and arms in this stuff. If you're that paranoid- stay home
TORONTO -- Health Canada is recalling six types of hand sanitizers sold in Canadian stores that are made with industrial-grade ethanol.
The recall, issued Saturday, advises anyone with the products in their home to stop using them immediately and consult a healthcare professional if they experience health concerns. Frequent use of these products may lead to dry skin, causing irritation or cracking.
The industrial-grade ethanol found in the products is not authorized for use in hand sanitizers and may contain impurities, Health Canada said.
The recalled products include:

  • Eltraderm Hand Sanitizer - 70% Ethyl Alcohol, made by Eltraderm Limited
  • Hand Sanitizer, made by Contract Packaging Distributions Inc.
  • Gel 700 Hand Sanitizer, made by Nature's Own Cosmetic Company Inc.
  • Sanilabs Hand Sanitizer 70% Ethanol, made by Sanilabs Inc.
  • Walker Emulsions Hand Sanitizer, made by Walker Emulsions Ltd.
  • Hand Sanitizer D├ęsinfectant pour les mains, made by Walker Emulsions Ltd.
 Of course poisoning, particularly of children, by hand sanitizers has been on the rise
"It is important that hand sanitizers are manufactured in a way that makes them unpalatable to people, especially young children, and that they are appropriately labeled to discourage accidental or intentional ingestion. Additionally, hand sanitizers are not proven to treat COVID-19, and like other products meant for external use, are not for ingestion, inhalation, or intravenous use," said FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn.
The FDA warning comes after a 79% increase in the number of calls related to hand sanitizer to the National Poison Data System this March compared to March 2019. The majority of those calls were for unintentional exposure in children under 5 years of age.
Same has occurred here in Canada.
That chemical is "great" for your liver- so you all just keep slathering it on and covering your kids with it. Okay? You won't save them from Covid, for sure, but you will most probably damage their liver!

  1. Hi Penny, if I may I'd like to call this one nothing burger. Ethanol even "industrial" grade is produced by many ethanol plants mostly for "green" automotive gasoline additive. And rumour has it that many craft distilleries purchase it to make "artisan" spirits such whiskey and people praise it and there are only minor hang overs from it LOL.
    Sanitizers are 65% or better ethanol solutions with some minor additives. I wouldn't be overly concerned over it unless people want to make cocktails out of it.
    Denaturated rubbing alcohol at 40% commonly available at pharmacy is more of a concern.
    Just saying

    1. I understand that used appropriately this is probably not the worst thing for us, BUT, hand sanitizer is being ingested by children- this is deadly serious.

      Also people are using it like crazy- I've seen it myself.
      At the grocery store I watched a woman cover her hands and arms to her elbows in the stuff.
      How many times a day does she do that?
      How many times a week?
      That repeated exposure adds up
      These same people are likely applying vast quantities of it to their children..??
      None of it will kill viruses.
      It will contribute to yet more superbugs (strains of bacteria)

      Skin is the body's largest organ- what one applies to skin enters the body.

      Hence the tie between cosmetics and breast cancer.

      If only people would act more normal- but they've been terrorized and fear makes people do really stupid things..
      I also wonder if it's an endocrine disruptor?
      Not sure, but, do question it
