August 27, 2020 FDA: COVID-19 Warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration: Consumers should be aware that alcohol-based hand sanitizers are being packaged in containers that may appear as commonly consumed food or drinks. These products may put consumers—and especially children—at risk of serious injury or death if ingested. The FDA warns about some hand sanitizers that are in containers and packages that look similar to beer cans, children’s food pouches, water bottles, vodka bottles, etc. What is even more alarming is that some hand sanitizers are sold with scents like chocolate and raspberry that can be attractive to children. The FDA urges consumers against using the hand sanitizer products found on this list (updated regularly). Further, any such products should be kept out of reach and sight of children. https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/covid-19-update-fda-warns-consumers-about-hand-sanitizer-packaged-food-and-drink-containers
