FDA warns that vapors from alcohol-based hand sanitizers can have side effects

FYI - The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a Drug Safety Communication for hand sanitizers, warning that symptoms such as headache, nausea, and dizziness can occur after applying alcohol-based hand sanitizers to the skin and inhaling the vapors that linger.

These symptoms are likely to have occurred because of vapors from the hand sanitizer, potentially from exposure in enclosed spaces or places with poor air circulation.

Consumers should use hand sanitizers in a well-ventilated area.
