Warning on Bacterial Contamination in Hand Sanitizers: FDA Warns Consumers

Yo, keep it simple and try castile soap (like Dr. Bronner's, that you can buy in bulk concentrate that you dilute) and water. The soap makes the germs slide off, no need for an all-out assault to KILL them. Blech.

From the Huffington post:


The FDA has warned consumers not to use Clarcon skin products. From the release:

Risk of bacterial contamination has led the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to warn consumers to not use any products made by Clarcon Biological Chemistry Laboratory Inc.

The Roy, Utah, firm voluntarily recalled some skin sanitizers and skin protectants sold under a variety of brand names after a recent FDA inspection found that the products contained high levels of disease-causing bacteria.

What products are consumers being warned not to use?

Consumers should not use any Clarcon products. Examples of these products include

• Citrushield Lotion

• Dermasentials DermaBarrier

• Dermassentials by Clarcon Antimicrobial Hand Sanitizer
