Company Announcement

artnaturals is voluntarily recalling ten manufacturing lots of artnaturals 8oz Scent Free Hand Sanitizer. FDA testing identified 8oz bottles of Scent Free Hand Sanitizer from a single manufacturing lot: G20128A, contained several impurities. Upon being contacted by the FDA, artnaturals responded immediately to proactively address the matter out of an abundance of caution. After multiple communications with the FDA, the two groups have mutually agreed that artnaturals will issue a voluntary recall of 10 manufacturing lots of 8oz Scent Free Hand Sanitizer.

Exposure to the impurities found can happen naturally in our surrounding environments through inhalation, oral consumption and skin absorption. Long term exposure could result in cancers-including leukemia, cancer of the bone marrow and blood disorders. To date, artnaturals has not received any reports of adverse events related to this voluntarily recalled product.

The product is used to remove germs on hands that may cause illness when soap and water are not available and is packaged in 8 oz clear bottles. The voluntarily recalled ten manufacturing lots of artnaturals 8oz bottles of SCENT FREE hand sanitizer are as follows:
