On July 21, a bunch of hand sanitizers were put on the list of products that are unsafe and might put your health at risk.

Possible adverse reactions to the ingredients in these products may include dermatitis, such as skin irritation and cracking; eye irritation; upper respiratory system irritation; and headaches.

They're made with ethanol or denaturants that aren't acceptable for use in hand sanitizers in Canada.

Denaturants are added to ethanol so it's unfit for human consumption.

Some of those haven't been approved for use in hand sanitizers in Canada which means that they haven't been reviewed for safety or efficiency.

Reactions to them could be irritation of the skin, eyes and upper respiratory system as well as headaches.

If you have any of the products on the list, you should stop using them and consult a health care professional if you have used them and have health concerns.

Health Canada updates this list of recalled sanitizers once it becomes aware of more products.

There's also a list for those that are approved for use.
