Health officials have issued a warning to consumers about certain hand sanitizers produced in Mexico because they contained methanol, or wood alcohol at the beginning of the year.

ConsumerConnect had reported that exposure to the chemical has been linked to a laundry list of serious health issues, including nausea, vomiting, seizures, comas, and even death.

Yet, another company produced hand sanitizers with the same toxic ingredient.

Scentsational Soaps & Candles, Incorporated has recalled several lots of its hand sanitizer products as tests revealed the presence of methanol, benzene, and acetaldehyde.

It was gathered the products were distributed across the United States at Ulta Beauty, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls retail locations respectively.

The manufacturing company says it has notified direct customers, and has asked for the products to be removed from store shelves immediately to prevent harm to consumers’ wellbeing.

In view of the development, consumers who have one of the affected products listed in the US Food and Drug Administration’s recall announcement are urged to stop using them and return them to the place(s) of purchase.
