They are labelled with NDP 80098979 and have an expiry date of May 2023.

While they are no longer believed to be counterfeit products, they are potentially dangerous as they contain methanol.

According to the health agency, this could cause “serious health issues,” including eye irritation, upper respiratory system irritation, dermatitis and headaches. 

Methanol could even cause “deadly adverse reactions.”

Additionally, the hand sanitizers in question are unlikely to kill germs and bacteria as expected.

If you have this product at home, Health Canada suggests to stop using it immediately and contact your doctor if you have any concerns.
