Washington: The US Food and Drug Administration has warned against the indiscriminate use of hand sanitizers, saying that not all types of sanitizers are useful but also some are harmful to health.
According to the World News Agency, the US Food and Drug Administration has banned nine sanitizers of a Mexican company used in the country, declaring them substandard and instructed the company to withdraw all stocks by June 17. ۔
The FDA has revealed the presence of methanol in these products and warned consumers that methanol used indiscriminately can cause nausea, vomiting, headaches, blurred vision, loss of vision, epilepsy. Can cause seizures and coma and can have serious side effects on the nervous system.
Experts say that the Corona virus epidemic has led to a huge increase in sales of hand sanitizers around the world, but before using the product, consumers do not read the ingredients and their proportions and suffer losses. Always buy sanitizers from a good and reliable company and try to use sanitizers only where soap is not available for washing hands for twenty seconds.
No statement has been made by Maxine regarding the Food and Drug Administration’s ban.
