Recall Expansion of Durisan Non-Alcohol Hand Sanitizer
Sanit Technologies LLC d/b/a Durisan is updating its previously announced voluntary recall of Durisan Non Alcohol Antimicrobial Hand Sanitizer products that became contaminated with a common municipal water supply borne bacteria, Burkholderia contaminans. Use of a hand sanitizer contaminated with Burkholderia contaminans, generally considered to be of low virulence, can range from no reaction to possible infections in a person with a hand wound or scrapes because the bacteria could enter the bloodstream, especially in patients with compromised immune systems.
In the April 10, 2021 announcement, Durisan expanded the recall to include all of its Hand Sanitizer products that had not expired (produced after 4/10/2019).
Durisan discovered that promotional orders as well as small run production lot numbers which were not listed were intended for inclusion in the recall. For clarification, listed below are all affected lot numbers. Customers or consumers in possession of Durisan Non Alcohol Antimicrobial Hand Sanitizer products with these numbers in any form factor are encouraged to contact Durisan.
To date, no qualified reports of adverse reactions have been reported related to this recall.
