Health Canada is recalling certain sanitizers because they can pose health risks. An advisory issued June 6 announced the recall of hand sanitizers that include industrial-grade ethanol.

Now, Health Canada is recalling two more hand sanitizers which contain industrial-grade ethanol. The affected products are called Dash Vapes Hand Sanitizer and Isogel.

Health Canada has not approved industrial-grade ethanol as an ingredient in hand sanitizers. Frequent use of these products may result in dry skin, causing irritation or cracking. 

These products can be returned to pharmacies for proper disposal.

Additionally, Canadians can report any health product adverse events or complaints to Health Canada.
