A hand sanitizer sold without mention of the risks

Un désinfectant à mains vendu sans mention des risques

Health Canada has asked for the withdrawal of units of hand sanitizer, Triton of the flow of traffic, as they make no mention of the risks associated with its use.

The products covered are those containing ethanol, technical grade, a product for which Health Canada had temporarily allowed the use in the manufacture of the gel for the hands to meet the demand created by the pandemic of COVID-19.

The company Fluid Energy Group estimates that about 100 000 buckets of 20 litres of the wrong product labeled have been distributed across Canada, the majority in the Canadian Tire stores.

The products must be removed from the shelves in order to correct the labeling problem. The company is making the necessary adjustments to products in stock.

Health Canada asks those who have already purchased the product not to use it for the children or on the damaged skin. The use of this product is also not recommended for pregnant women and breastfeeding women.

The government institution advises to keep the product away from heat sources and avoid contact with eyes.
