Over a dozen brands of hand sanitisers have been recalled by Singapore’s Health Science Authority (HSA) due to high levels of methanol and/or acetaldehyde.

In a statement released on the government website, the products were tested under HSA’s product quality surveillance programme and were found to contain methanol and/or acetaldehyde at levels above the pharmaceutical pharmacopoeia limit.

The recall was classified as Class 2, which are for products with issues that “would not likely cause serious adverse health outcomes.”

The date of recall was between February and April 2021, and wholesale suppliers have been instructed to stop supplying specified batches of the product and return the remaining stocks to the company.

The HSA website also states that:

“When a recall is initiated, it does not necessarily imply that a product is considered unsafe or is inefficacious. A recall can also be initiated to remove products with quality defects that do not impact safety or efficacy from the market so as to ensure that products registered in Singapore continue to meet the stringent regulatory standards stipulated by HSA.”
