[ad_1]

Aruba Aloe Balm is recalling Aruba Aloe Hand Sanitizer Gel Alcohol 80% and Aruba Aloe Alcoholada Gel, which is sold across the U.S., after finding methanol in the products.

Substantial exposure to methanol, a toxic alcohol typically found in antifreeze and windshield washer fluid, can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, coma, seizures, blindness, damage to the central nervous system or death, the Oranjestad, Aruba-based company stated in a notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration. 

Anyone using the recalled products on their hands are at risk, while children who accidentally ingest them and adolescents and adults who drink them as an alcohol substitute are most at risk for methanol poisoning, according to the company.
