@Mindy D    Good heavens, this hand sanitizer is proving to be the most dangerous part of the pandemic.  Did you read @SeaMaiden  's thread on the subject?  I don't use much of the stuff but I'll stick with Purell.

@Kachina624 @In the case of this hand sanitizer, it's being recalled because it is contaminated with bacteria, one species of which was the reason for the recent recall of Parodex Oral Rinse. There's an increase of recalls in lotions and beauty products that are contaminated with this bacteria. It thrives in a wet environment.  SeaMaiden posted about carcinogens in sanitizers (Valisure labs tested and found benzene) and most of the other recalls for alcohol based sanitizers have been for sanitizers containing methanol. We just received a refund card for the Cottonelle Wipes that were contaminated a few months ago. A person just has to try to keep abreast of news about recalls because there are so many of them.

Hahaha. Your title accidentally says Durian, but the brand is Durisan. I was thinking who on Earth would buy durian scented hand sanitizer? Maybe to ensure social distancing?

@Porcelain @Kachina624 @Forgot to add that Scent Theory Soaps were recently recalled for the same bacterial contamination. Scent Theory recalled some of its soaps due to potential contamination with Burkholderia cepacia bacteria. The products affected by the Scent Theory recall, which was issued on Feb. 11, are 11-oz. bottles of its foaming hand soap in Lemon Citrus, Vanilla Coconut, Eucalyptus Mint, and Fresh Lavender.
