For at least the ninth time since the pandemic began, Health Canada is recalling a number of hand sanitizers over the kind of alcohol they contain.
The agency says these sanitizers contain technical-grade ethanol, which could be harmful if ingested.
Officials are worried about the possibility of small children accidentally eating some of the sanitizer.
The latest recall covers the following products:
- BioOrigin Pure Hands Antibacterial Hand Gel by Mineral Origin Inc. (Expiry dates of October and November 2021)
- BioOrigin Pure Hands Purifying Hand Cleansing Gel by Mineral Origin Inc. (No expiry date listed)
- Opti-Max Opti-Pure by Les Produits Optimax Inc. (Expiry of May 2022)
