The Food and Drug Administration has expanded to 87 the number of store-bought hand sanitizers that consumers should avoid because they contain a potentially toxic chemical.

The regulatory agency on Tuesday said it has seen a “sharp increase” in sanitizers that claim to contain ethanol but that have tested positive for methanol. Also known as wood alcohol, methanol can be toxic when absorbed through the skin and deadly if swallowed. Some of the sanitizers identified by the FDA is potentially dangerous are sold nationwide at retailers including Walmart and Target.”Methanol is not an acceptable ingredient for hand sanitizers and must not be used due to its toxic effects,” the FDA said in a statement, directing consumers to its website, where it maintains a list of hand sanitizer products to avoid.”The agency is aware of adults and children ingesting hand sanitizer products contaminated with methanol that has led to recent adverse events including blindness, hospitalizations and death,” the FDA previously stated.Young children who accidentally ingest these products, as well as adolescents and adults who drink them as an alcohol substitute, are most at risk of methanol poisoning, according to the agency. Demand for hand sanitizer has spiked due to the coronavirus pandemic, as public health officials encourage frequent hand washing. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% ethanol if soap and water are not available. The FDA on Monday added two new brands of hand sanitizers to its recall list, due to the potential presence of methanol in the products. A company called 4E Brands voluntarily recalled all lots of its hand sanitizer brands. Another company, Resource and Recovery Trading, also recalled all lots of its hand sanitizers. The following is the latest list of potentially toxic sanitizers, according to the FDA:AAA Cosmetica’s bio aaa Advance Hand Sanitizer AAA Cosmetica’s LumiSkin Advance Hand Sanitizer 4 ozAAA Cosmetica’s LumiSkin Advance Hand Sanitizer 16 ozAAA Cosmetica’s QualitaMed Hand Sanitizer Broncolin’s Herbacil Antiseptic Hand Sanitizer 70% AlcoholDDI Multinacional’s Earths Amenities Instant Unscented Hand Sanitizer with Aloe Vera AdvancedDDI Multinacional’s Hand Sanitizer Agavespa SkincareDDI Multinacional’s Vidanos Easy Cleaning Rentals Hand Sanitizer Agavespa SkincareEskbiochem’s All-Clean Hand SanitizerEskbiochem’s Esk Biochem Hand SanitizerEskbiochem’s Lavar 70 Gel Hand SanitizerEskbiochem’s The Good Gel Antibacterial Gel Hand SanitizerEskbiochem’s CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% AlcoholEskbiochem’s CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% AlcoholEskbiochem’s CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% Alcohol4E Global’s Blumen Clear Advanced Hand Sanitizer with 70% Alcohol4E Global’s Blumen Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer Clear Ethyl Alcohol 70%4E Global’s Blumen Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer Clear4E Global’s Klar and Danver Instant Hand Sanitizer (labeled with Greenbrier International Inc.)4E Global’s Modesa Instant Hand Sanitizer Moisturizers and Vitamin E4E Global’s Blumen Advanced Hand Sanitizer4E Global’s Blumen Advanced Hand Sanitizer Aloe4E Global’s Blumen Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer Lavender4E Global’s Blumen Clear Lear Advanced Hand Sanitizer4E Global’s Blumen Clear Advanced Hand Sanitizer4E Global’s The Honeykeeper Hand Sanitizer4E Global’s Blumen Advanced Hand Sanitizer Clear4E Global’s Blumen Clear Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer4E Global’s Blumen Clear Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer Aloe4E Global’s Blumen Clear Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer Lavender4E Global’s Blumen Aloe Advanced Hand Sanitizer, with 70% Alcohol4E Global’s Blumen Advanced Hand Sanitizer Lavender, with 70% alcohol4E Global’s Blumen Advanced Hand Sanitizer Aloe, with 70% alcohol4E Global’s Blumen Antibacterial Fresh Citrus Hand Sanitizer4E Global’s Blumen Hand Sanitizer Fresh Citrus4E Global’s Klar and Danver Instant Hand Sanitizer4E Global’s Hello Kitty by Sanrio Hand Sanitizer4E Global’s Assured Instant Hand Sanitizer (Vitamin E and Aloe)4E Global’s Assured Instant Hand Sanitizer (Aloe and Moisturizers)4E Global’s Assured Instant Hand Sanitizer Vitamin E and Aloe4E Global’s Assured Instant Hand Sanitizer Aloe and Moisturizers4E Global’s Blumen Instant Hand Sanitizer Fragrance Free4E Global’s Blumen Instant Hand Sanitizer Aloe Vera4E Global’s Assured AloeEskbiochem’s  Saniderm Advanced Hand SanitizerGrupo Insoma’s Hand sanitizer Gel Unscented 70% AlcoholITECH 361’s All Clean Hand Sanitizer, Moisturizer and DisinfectantJaloma Antiseptic Hand Sanitizer Ethyl Alcohol 62% with Vitamin ELeiper’s Fork Distillery Bulk Disinfectant per 5 gallon and Leiper’s Fork Distillery 16 ozLimpo Quimicos’ Andy’s BestLimpo Quimicos’ Andy’sLimpo Quimicos’ GelclorLimpo Quimicos’ NeoNaturalLimpo Quimicos’ Plus AdvancedLiqesa Exportacion or Liq-E-S.A.’s Optimus Lubricants Instant Hand SanitizerMaquiladora Miniara’s Shine and Clean Hand SanitizerMaquiladora Miniara’s Selecto Hand SanitizerMXL Comercial’s Hand Sanitizer Disinfectant Gel 70% Ethyl Alcohol (labeled with Resource Recovery & Trading LLC)MXL Comercial’s Hand Sanitizer Disinfectant Gel 70% Ethyl Alcohol Rinse Free Hand Rub (labeled with Resource Recovery & Trading LLC)Mystic International’s Mystic Shield Protection hand sanitizerReal Clean Distribuciones’s Born Basic Anti-Bac Hand SanitizerReal Clean Distribuciones’s Anti-Bac Hand SanitizerReal Clean Distribuciones’s Scent Theory – Keep It Clean – Pure Clean Anti-bacterial Hand SanitizerReal Clean Distribuciones’s CavalryReal Clean Distribuciones’s ENLIVEN Hand Sanitizing GelReal Clean Distribuciones’s Lux Eoi Hand Sanitizing GelReal Clean Distribuciones’s Keep It CleanSaniderm Advanced Hand SanitizerReal Clean Distribuciones’s Hand SanitizerSoluciones Cosmeticas’ Bersih Hand Sanitizer Gel Fragrance FreeSoluciones Cosmeticas’ Antiseptic Alcohol 70% Topical Solution hand sanitizerSoluciones Cosmeticas’ Hand sanitizer (labeled with Wet Look Janitorial and Gardening Corp.)Transliquid Technologies’s Mystic Shield Protection hand sanitizerTropicosmeticos’ Britz Hand Sanitizer Ethyl Alcohol 70%Yara Elena De La Garza Perez Nieto’s Daesi hand sanitizer
