WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 06: A basket of smaller bottles of hand sanitizer in the coronavirus pop-up store by Adilisha Patrom, owner of the Suites DC, a co-working and event space across the street from Gallaudet University, who started her pop-up store that sells face masks, protective gloves, and hand sanitizer for customers concerned about the spread of the novel coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 disease in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, DC on March 6, 2020. With the growing spread of the coronavirus around the world it is becoming harder and harder to find protective equipment and hand sanitizer around the country, especially the N95 protective face mask which Patrom is selling for $30, three times its regular cost.

Can’t we just do one thing right?
The FDA just added five more names to its list of TOXIC hand sanitizers you should throw out immediately.
Last month, they said nine types made in Mexico tested positive for something called methanol that’s extremely toxic. And all five of the new ones were made in Mexico too. So check your bottles.
Here are the new brands they say to avoid . . .
1. Grupo Insoma’s Hand Sanitizer Gel.
2. Transliquid Technologies’ Mystic Shield Protection.
3. Bersih Hand Sanitizer Gel. It’s made by a company called “Soluciones Cosmeticas.”
4. Antiseptic Alcohol 70% Topical Solution, made by the same company.
5. Britz Hand Sanitizer, made by a company called Tropicosmeticos.
If enough methanol gets into your skin, it can cause all kinds of issues. Like nausea, headaches, blurry vision, seizures, and blindness. It can even kill you.
