[COVID-19] FDA Warns of Hidden Health Threat!

Dear Turapür Today Reader,

Summer is over and fall is in full swing. And while a coronavirus vaccine appears to be on the horizon, one thing remains an absolute certainty…

The coronavirus ISN’T going away anytime soon.

For millions of American, this still means things like social distancing… wearing masks… handwashing… and even frequent use of hand sanitizer have become the new ‘normal.’

But for readers of Turapür Today, I’ve been cluing you in on a disturbing trend with one of the ‘remedies’ designed to keep your safe from the coronavirus… and why it could actually contain a hidden threat NO ONE is talking about?

Let’s recap…

A few weeks ago, as part of its ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told both consumers and health care professionals to steer clear of HAND SANITIZER!

But there was a twist…

You see, according to the FDA, they’ve seen a sharp INCREASE in hand sanitizer products that are labeled to contain ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol) … but tested positive for methanol CONTAMINATION.

And that’s bad news for your health…

Methanol, or wood alcohol, is TOXIC when absorbed through your skin… and even life-threatening when ingested.

According to the FDA, methanol is NOT an acceptable active ingredient for hand sanitizers and must NOT be used due to its toxic effects.

And just a couple weeks ago, the FDA was forced to send ANOTHER warning to consumers about hand sanitizer and methanol… this time warning Americans to beware of sanitizers claiming they have FDA approval.

The FDA recently sent a warning letter to Eskbiochem S.A. de C.V. (a chemical manufacturer based in Mexico) for distributing a methanol-containing product with unapproved claims—including falsely claiming that it has FDA approval.

In other words, the company is falsely claiming it has FDA approval just to make a quick buck at the risk of your safety.

This is why I’ve decided to cut through the noise and outline EXACTLY what you should be looking for when it comes to hand sanitizer.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says hand sanitizers should be at least 60% ethyl alcohol or 70% isopropyl alcohol.

And according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it’s okay to use sanitizers that include sterile distilled water, hydrogen peroxide and glycerin.

You want to steer clear of ANYTHING with methanol or 1-propanol, both of which can be highly toxic.

I know that hand sanitizer can be in short-supply and high-demand these days… and reading those ingredient list can be tedious.

Luckily the FDA has a comprehensive list of all hand sanitizer brands that:

  • Have been tested and found to contain methanol or 1-propanol…
  • Are being recalled by the manufacturer or distributor…
  • And are purportedly made at the same facility as products that the FDA found to contain methanol.

If the brand you are using is on this list… THROW IT OUT and take extra steps to wash your hands more frequently.

If it’s not… you’re in the clear and it’s safe to use the hand sanitizer as-needed.

It’s as simple as that!
