The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has received information from US FDA on the voluntary recall by manufacturer of Prairie Wolf Distillery hand sanitizer packaged in 16.9 fluid ounce (UPC 6000331899) and 20.0 fluid ounce (UPC 6000365984) containers to the consumer level. The product poses a risk of ingestion due to its resemblance to water drinking containers.
Ingesting hand sanitizer, which is intended for topical use, could potentially result in alcohol toxicity. Symptoms of alcohol toxicity may range from lack of coordination, slowed or slurred speech, drowsiness to coma, which can be fatal. Furthermore, ingesting alcohol can affect the brain and cause impaired driving or operating heavy machinery. Alcohol can also interact with numerous drugs which may result in serious adverse effects. Ingesting alcohol by people with alcohol addiction may interfere with maintaining abstinence. Additionally, people with alcohol addiction may seek large amounts of ethanol-based hand sanitizers as a substitute.
