Health officials say exposure to the products could cause cancer

Wellness and beauty product company artnaturals has announced that it is recalling 10 manufacturing lots of its 8 oz. Scent Free Hand Sanitizer products because they contain potentially dangerous impurities. 

Tests conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) initially identified the impurities. A recall was issued after the agency contacted artnaturals about the issue.

The company said long-term exposure -- through inhalation, oral consumption, or skin absorption -- could result in various cancers and blood disorders. To date, artnaturals says it has not received any reports of adverse events linked to the products.

A full list of the affected products -- with manufacturing dates, batch numbers, lots, expiration dates, and UPC numbers -- can be viewed on the FDA’s site here.

Consumers who own any of the recalled hand sanitizers are being advised to stop using them and throw them away. A refund can be requested by calling artnaturals’ Customer Experience at 1-855-278-4488. The company is available to take calls Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT).
