Soho Fresh Rubbing Alcohol Recalled for Methanol Contamination
Consumers can face serious injury or death from dangerous product.
Monday, January 11, 2021 - Essaar Inc. has recalled one lot of Soho Fresh 70% Rubbing Alcohol due to contamination with methanol. The affected bottles, sold in stores nationwide in 33.81-ounce clear plastic containers, may cause vomiting, nausea, blurred vision, headaches, seizures, permanent blindness, nervous system damage, coma, or death due to the dangerous contaminant.
The recall comes on the heels of a large number of hand sanitizer recalls resulting from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's probe into methanol contaminants found in the products. The FDA reportedly analyzed Soho Fresh 70% Rubbing Alcohol in its investigation to uncover hidden methanol in these types of products.
The recalled lot is number 200528303 and UPC 7502268987367. A press release on the FDA website did not say how many bottles of product are affected by the recall.
Though anyone using the product is at risk for adverse reactions related to methanol, the FDA says young children who accidentally drink the product, as well as those who drink it for an inexpensive alcohol substitute are most at risk for poisoning.
Essar Inc. has not reported any adverse events related to the recall thus far.
Consumers who have purchased Soho Fresh 70% Rubbing Alcohol from the recalled lot are advised to stop using it immediately and discard or return any remaining product to the place where it was purchased for a full refund.
