FDA urges consumers not use certain hand sanitizer products

by Jason Liburdi on November 11, 2020

As we all know, regular hand sanitizing is one of the most important practices in the fight against viruses and other germs. Because of extreme demand for hand sanitizer, the market has unfortunately been flooded with hundreds of unsafe products. Many of these “hand sanitizers” don’t meet the FDA’s requirement of illuminating 99.9% of germs. Worse yet, some of these products are made from cheaper methyl alcohol, which is dangerous.

The FDA advises consumers not to use hand sanitizers produced by manufactures identified in this table. Any hand sanitizer provider should be able to provide you with the following information if it isn’t already on the label: 

  • The names of the specific manufacturers
  • The NDC number, which may be located on the product label
  • The name of the distributors that sell, sold or planned to sell specific sanitizer products by these manufacturers

As the name implies, Astreea Safe is completely safe to use. All our sanitizer products are made in the USA and FDA registered, and the NDC number is always listed on our labels for traceability.

Gentle but powerful, Astreea Safe eliminates 99.9% of germs while leaving hands feeling soft and clean. Our premium gel product is created with a 70% ethyl alcohol formula that leaves no residue and features a clean citrus scent.
