Recalled Hand Sanitizer

This is actually from the CDC. Some hand sanitizers, most of which are from China contain methanol, rather than ethanol. Methanol is poisonous. It is also found in Sterno. Sometimes alcoholics when all else fails, will drink methanol. This is where the phrase “blind drunk” comes from. While it is unlikely you could absorb enough methanol through your skin to cause problems, methanol is toxic.
