Hand Sanitizer-Caution

We supplied 1,000 bottles of hand sanitizer to a state agency to market a program they supervise. I think that is a good item to use this flu season (although I hear with swine flue it never really went out of season–cases all summer).  One caution, if children are around hand sanitizer, be careful they don’t ingest it.  One school had it in the classroom and kindergarten kid licked the sanitizer off her hands and had immediate signs of alcohol poisoning.  I understand it about 60% alcohol so I can see how that could happen.  Snopes (www.snopes.com) has an article with details.  A smaller body would not be able to handle a quantity of the alcohol as much as a larger one.  M
