Health Canada has issued yet another advisory to Canadians regarding hand sanitizers that may pose health risks.
The warning comes following previous notices issued by the federal agency on other hand sanitizer products.
The latest advisory concerns hand sanitizers made with industrial-grade ethanol, which is not authorized for use in hand sanitizers, and may pose health risks.
