Durisan hand sanitizer recall expanded by FDA

Posted at 4:47 PM, May 17, 2021

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that Sanit Technologies had expanded the recall on its Durisan non-alcohol hand sanitizer because it's contaminated with Burkholderia contaminants.

According to the FDA, the bacteria can get into the bloodstream if they use hand sanitizer while they have a wound on their hand.

"Use of a hand sanitizer contaminated with Burkholderia contaminants, generally considered to be of low virulence, can range from no reaction to possible infections in a person with a hand wound or scrapes because the bacteria could enter the bloodstream, especially in patients with compromised immune systems," the FDA said in the recall notice.

The initial recall was issued in March. Then expanded in April.

FDA said the recall was expanded due to the company discovering "that promotional orders, as well as small run production lot numbers which were not listed, were intended for inclusion in the recall."

The FDA said consumers had not reported any qualified reports of adverse reactions related to this recall.
