The FDA’s Do Not Use hand sanitizer list, once a roll call of Mexican-made hand sanitizers with methanol, now includes hand sanitizers from China, Texas, North Carolina, Georgia and Utah.

And methanol’s been joined by 1-propanol as a prohibited “toxic” ingredient.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information said 1-propanol “is used as a solvent in the pharmaceutical industry, and for resins and cellulose esters.”

As for the FDA, it said, “1-propanol, not to be confused with 2-propanol/isopropanol/isopropyl alcohol, is not an acceptable ingredient for hand sanitizer products marketed in the United States and can be toxic and life-threatening when ingested.”

That’s also a threat with methanol, also known as wood alcohol.
