The Food and Drug Administration has recalled even more hand sanitizers with a newly identified, deadly toxin — bringing the list to 150.  This new toxin is known as 1-propanol, which can cause depression of the central nervous system and cause death if ingested.  “FDA is warning consumers and health care professionals about certain hand sanitizer products, including those manufactured by Harmonic Nature S de RL de MI in Mexico, that are labeled to contain ethanol or isopropyl alcohol but have tested positive for 1-propanol contamination,” the agency said.

“1-propanol, not to be confused with 2-propanol/isopropanol/isopropyl alcohol, is not an acceptable ingredient for hand sanitizer products marketed in the United States and can be toxic and life-threatening when ingested.”
