Company Announcement

Sanit Technologies LLC d/b/a Durisan, is providing an additional 5 label illustrations and product sizes for customers that might not have been able to clearly identify containers of Non-Alcohol Hand Sanitizer products that were added to the voluntary recall initiated on March 24, 2021, and expanded by the April 10 and May 14, 2021 notices. To avoid any confusion, this press release provides copies of label illustrations for the recalled products.

To date, no qualified reports of adverse reactions have been reported related to this recall.

The product is intended to be applied topically to help reduce bacteria on the skin that could cause diseases when soap and water are not available.
