75 Hand Sanatizer Brands Are Being Recalled Harmful If Absorbed

The Food and Drug Administration has expanded the list of hand sanitizers some sold at Walmart, Costco and other national chains being recalled to at least 75 recently, saying toxic levels of wood alcohol in them can cause injury or death.

The FDA said that there has been an increase in hand sanitizers that are labeled to contain ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, but have tested positive for methanol, or wood alcohol. If methanol is absorbed through the skin, it can cause blindness and hospitalizations, or death if ingested.
