LABORATORIOS JALOMA S.A. de C.V. is voluntarily recalling all lots and all bottle sizes of the Jaloma Antiseptic Hand Sanitizer, Ethyl Alcohol 62% With vitamin E to the consumer level. This recall has been initiated because FDA sampled the 500 mL product and found it to be contaminated with undeclared methanol (wood alcohol). Although the contamination was linked to the 500 mL product, due to the abundance of caution, Jaloma is recalling all lots of all sizes within expiry. The NDCs, lot #s, and expiration dates are listed in the table below.
