Hand Sanitizer Blindness Lawsuits

According to a news report posted on FoxBusiness.com, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is reporting that Methanol, a toxic substance, has been discovered in other consumer products and not only hand sanitizers. The FDA warns consumers that Methanol is toxic to humans and must not be used in consumer products due to its toxic effects. The FDA warns the public that exposure to Methanol can lead to coma, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, permanent damage to the nervous system, or death. Mild symptoms or the initial symptoms of Methanol poisoning may include nausea, vomiting, and headache. The agency urges consumers who are experiencing these symptoms to seek “immediate treatment.”

Today, the U.S. FDA announced a recall of some Scentsational Soaps & Candles, Inc.’s “scented hand sanitizers” that are sold at Ulta Beauty, Marshalls, and TJ Maxx retail stores nationwide. The FDA’s announcement warns consumers that specific Scentsational Soaps & Candles’ scented hand sanitizers were tested and were found to be contaminated with MethanolBenzene, and Acetaldehyde which are all toxic to humans and can lead to organ damage, cancers, and other deadly diseases.

According to the recall notice, this recall affects five lots of the Scentsational Soaps & Candles scented hand sanitizers from the “Black and White Collection and Photo Real Collection” and three lots of the “Ulta Beauty Collection” scented hand sanitizer spray. Ulta Beauty has already removed the recalled Ulta Beauty Collection products from its store shelves and online store.

TJX Companies stated that the company is in the process of removing all remaining hand sanitizers that are part of this recall from its Marshalls and TJ Maxx stores nationwide. The company stated that their merchandise vendors have represented and warranted that their products that they supply to TJX Companies “are in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and industry standards – including all safety standards.”

Methanol contamination has been a severe and growing problem that the FDA has been battling since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. In July of 2020, the FDA announced the creation of a “rolling list of potentially dangerous hand sanitizers” after witnessing a sharp increase in the number of sanitizer brands that stated the product contained Ethanol but actually tested positive for toxic Methanol. So far, the FDA’s hand sanitizer “Do Not Use” list has grown to include over 235 different products.

5 Star Reviews 150
I was in a car accident about a month ago, and had no idea what to do or where to go for help. As I was struggling to walk one morning, when the commercial for Park Waichman came on and the jingle stuck in my head "1800 Just Call, just call that's all!" Well, I called, and like the jingle says, that's all I had to do. Everyone at the office has been a very present help, and always answer my calls and emails timely. Julie and Maryann have been so patient and wonderful with my constant questions, and have taken care of everything! Joanne has been a constant reassurance in reaching out to check on me and make sure that my medical needs are being addressed by my health care providers and that my care is progressing as best as possible. She has a very warm and kindhearted demeanor, which makes everything seem like it will be ok. Thank you for that Joanne, it means the world to me! I would highly recommend the team at Parker Waichman.
