18 Hand Sanitisers in S’pore gets recalled by HSA due to chemicals above limits

Recalled at wholesale level

A number of hand sanitisers have been recalled by HSA due to high levels of chemical compounds

In case you didn’t know, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) has recently recalled a number of hand sanitisers in Singapore due to the high level of chemicals detected.

The chemicals that were found to exceed the pharmaceutical limit are acetaldehyde and/or methanol.

The affected products are being recalled on a wholesale level (stop supply and return back to the company) but as HSA has specified, it does not necessarily imply that a product is considered unsafe or is inefficacious.
