Company Announcement

Sanit Technologies LLC d/b/a Durisan announces a voluntary recall expansion of its Durisan Antimicrobial Hand Sanitizer, NonAlcohol products in various sizes listed to now include products that have not yet expired. The products are being recalled due to out of specification microbial contamination. The issue was discovered during a routine audit.

To date, no reports of adverse reactions or customer complaints 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.

Use of a hand sanitizer contaminated with Burkholderia contaminans, generally considered to be of low virulence, can range from no reaction to possible infections in a person with a hand wound or scrapes because the bacteria could enter the bloodstream, especially in patients with compromised immune systems.

The product is packaged in sizes ranging from 18mL credit cards, to bottles sized in 118, 236, 300 and 550 mL and 1000mL wall mounted dispenser refills.
