- A company voluntarily recalled hand sanitizers that resembled food and beverage pouches
- The pouches also had children’s characters on them
- Ingesting hand sanitizer is not safe, especially for children
- The confusing packaging could lead to accidental hand sanitizer ingestion
A company has voluntarily recalled several of its hand sanitizer products with packages that look rather like food or drink pouches. Such products may lead to accidental ingestion, which is potentially harmful to health.
On Oct. 2, the FDA released a company announcement from Ashtel Studios voluntarily recalling several 25-milliliter containers of hand sanitizers that are packaged in what looks like food or beverage pouches and, even have children’s characters displayed on them.
The recall affects the following products, all of which are packaged in 25 ml pouches:
- PAW Patrol Hand Sanitizer (NDC 70108-042-01 )
- JoJo Siwa Hand Sanitizer (NDC 70108-044-01 )
- Hot Wheels Hand Sanitizer (NDC 70108-045-01 )
