A recall has been issued for a hand sanitizer that may have been sold online and have a toxic chemical.

The product was sold online throughout the United States.

According to the FDA, the sanitizer may contain methanol. The recalls were issued between June of 2020 and October of 2021.

While this sort of product usually has ethanol, which kills germs and is fine for skin, methanol could be created instead of ethanol if it isn’t created properly.

Methanol can be absorbed by human skin or through inhalation, ingestion, or eye contact.

The voluntary recall was issued by Adam’s Polishes, LLC and the FDA published it on Monday.

4 ounce, 8 ounce, and 16 ounce sprays have been impacted as well as the one gallon jugs of hand sanitizer.
