Health Canada recalls PURE75 gel hand sanitizer due to potential serious health risks

Health Canada has suspended the product licence for PURE75 gel hand sanitizer (NPN 80098346) due to health risks. The Department tested the product and found that it contains an undeclared impurity, methanol, at elevated levels. Methanol can cause serious health issues and is not authorized for use in hand sanitizers.

Frequent exposure to hand sanitizers containing elevated levels of methanol may cause skin irritation, eye irritation, breathing problems, and headaches. If swallowed, methanol can cause severe adverse reactions, including death.
