Disney-Branded Hand Sanitizers Have Been Recalled
Best Brands Consumer Products voluntarily recalled two lots of Disney-branded hand sanitizers according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Accordingly, the hand sanitizers featured Mickey Mouse and baby Yoda from “The Mandalorian.”
The FDA detected benzene in “The Mandalorian” product and methanol in the Mickey Mouse hand sanitizers. The FDA notified Best Brands Consumer Products of the results in late February.
Benzene is a carcinogen, which can cause leukemia as well as life-threatening blood disorders with continuous exposure. Also, methanol causes serious health problems such as nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, coma, seizures, permanent blindness, permanent damage to the central nervous system, or death with continuous exposure.
The FDA said, “young children who accidentally ingest these products, and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk for methanol poisoning.” The affected lots were taken off the market for “unrelated commercial reasons;” therefore, no customers complained according to Best Brands Consumer Products. According to Best Brands, a third-party manufacturer produced both lots of hand sanitizer.
Here’s What You Should Do…
Therefore, discard any items from lot 20E21 with an expiration date of September 30, 2022. This includes The Mandalorian hand sanitizer, which contains 68% ethyl alcohol and is available in green and blue 2.11 fl oz bottles. In addition, discard the Mickey Mouse hand sanitizer from lot 20D21 with a June 30, 2022 expiration date in blue, 2.11 fl oz bottles.
Report Any Issues
So, if you have any issues with these Disney-branded hand sanitizers, please report your problems to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program.
