RIYADH — The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) warned consumers against the use of a hand sanitizer called “First, Hand Sanitizing Gel” because of the high level methyl alcohol (methanol) content.

It also urged to contact the Ministry of Commerce’s Notification Center 1900 in the event the seller refused to refund.

The authority said that it is taking the necessary measures in coordination with the competent authorities to follow up on withdrawing the product from the market, preventing its circulation and taking the regulatory measures against violators.
