Toxic hand sanitizers

    Perhaps worth to keep a thread here for highlighting brands which are toxic?

    A list of the FDAs 75 here, not certain if they're available in Europe.

    https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/fda-updates-hand-sanitizers-methanol#products

    Extremely unlikely to be outside of north america, I didn't see the sense in posting it earlier.

    Every product on the spreadsheet was imported from Mexico as far as I could see. Though I do have some US made sanitizer right here that is ethyl alcohol bases according to the label and I'm a bit more hesitant to slather it on after reading about this. Soap will do fine for the moment.

    The frustrating thing is with Trump running the FDA you have a sincere doubt in the back of your mind whether they are keeping US labels off the list or not, or just only fixated on testing Mexican imports, to the detriment of domestics. However, Trump actually managed to pick a competent agency head for the FDA, so it's probably not so.

    Trump still managed to recommend bleach as a "cure"

    Now now, he said "disinfectant," I want to be fair to all his advocates. :rolleyes:
