FDA urges consumers not to use hand sanitizers listed below.

These hand sanitizers are banned either because they contain toxic chemicals such as methanol/1-propanol, or because the alcohol level was found to be too low to be effective.

Voluntary recalls have been issued, but some products may still be found on store shelves.
