Jarman's Midwest Cleaning Recalls Hand Sanitizer Non-sterile Solution

Canton, South Dakota-based Jarman’s Midwest Cleaning Systems, Inc. is recalling certain hand sanitizer non-sterile solution due to the presence of methanol, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

The recall includes all lots of Alcohol Antiseptic 80% Topical Solution Hand Sanitizer Non-sterile Solution and Isopropyl Alcohol Antiseptic 75% Topical Solution Hand Sanitizer Non-sterile Solution to the consumer level. These come under Midwest Cleaning Solutions and Clean Pro Supply brand names.

These are used as hand sanitizers and marketed to help decrease bacteria on the skin when soap and water are not available. The products are packaged in 1-gallon clear or white plastic bottles. The product may have been purchased by the 1-gallon bottle, or by the case which contains 4 of the 1-gallon bottles per box.

The recall was initiated after the FDA testing found the presence of methanol in the products.

Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache blurred vision, coma, seizures, permanent blindness, permanent damage to the central nervous system, or death.

Although all are at risk, young children who accidently ingest these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute are most at risk for methanol poisoning.

Jarman’s Midwest Cleaning has not received any reports of adverse events related to these products to date.

Consumers that have the recalled products should stop using and either dispose of it in accordance with local ordinances, or contact Jarman’s Midwest Cleaning for returns.
