Various licensed character themed hand sanitizers from Ashtel Studios have been recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for misleading product design. The hand sanitizers are deemed to look too similar to food and drink pouches, which could ultimately pose a great health risk amongst children.
Previously, the Oklahoma Center for Poison and Drug Information strongly countered against the use of pouch shaped hand sanitizers with a potential list of harm it could inflict on confused kids. Scott Schaeffer, the center’s managing director, made the appeal that the pouches often resemble apple sauces or various other kiddie snacks.
Schaeffer also urges the fact that if a child were to be mislead by one of the pouch shaped sanitizers, it could create a serious problem since the alcohol content within is extremely strong. It is advised that a caregiver immediately call poison control if a child ingests hand sanitizer.
