Not only was it a bogus hand sanitizer Dollarama was selling ( a counterfeit Daily Shield hand sanitizer ) but it also contained Methanol, which can cause serious illness or even death if ingested. Methanol is commonly referred to a ‘ wood alcohol ‘ a highly toxic substance primarily used/converted in formaldehyde, and can cause depression of the central nervous system and/or methanol poisoning.
The FDA ( US Food and Drug Administration ) has recognized 9 fake hand sanitizers on the market, with Methanol, mostly produced from/in Mexico.
And this doesn’t seem to be a problem just in the USA and Canada, India and other parts of the World are also reporting sales of bogus hand sanitizers.
