29 Jul Hand Sanitizer Recalls
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, to ensure adequate supply, the FDA permitted companies to use trace amounts of ethanol-based products, such as benzene, in their hand sanitizer products. However, multiple companies took advantage of the pandemic to sell hand sanitizers with large amounts of benzene in them, well in excess in the trace amounts temporarily allowed by the FDA. Benzene is a known human carcinogen used to make rocket fuel. Honik LLC is representing a nationwide class of purchasers who bought these contaminated hand sanitizer products.
