Which hand sanitizers are toxic?
The FDA is continually updating their warning list of National Drug Code registry numbers (NDC numbers) for hand sanitizers containing or testing positive for traces of methanol. There isn't a major brand on this list just yet — but it's good to check your bottle to quell any concerns. As of July 22, the FDA's recall list includes the following 75 variations on the agency's full list, where you may also view NDC numbers. Recent additions include:
Liqesa Exportacion

The Food and Drug Administration has expanded its recall list to include 75 different hand sanitizers due to the presence of methanol in randomized tests.
Methanol, a type of alcohol, is toxic when ingested and may be harmful when applied directly to the skin.
Many of the products are manufactured in Mexico and contain expiration dates into 2022, but the safety agency is continually updating the list below.

Good to be conscious of this for sure, but I don't think many people using this as intended are at risk here. Don't drink it and don't bathe in it and you'll probably be alright.

“Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death. Although all persons using these products on their hands are at risk for methanol poisoning, young children who accidentally ingest these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk,” warns the FDA.

My assumption is that if they ship the shit with one problem it probably has many more. Kind of like the toothpaste from yesteryear with ethylene glycol in it.

The FDA doesn't even test much stuff. If they issue a recall that means there are serious problems or enough people complained.
