The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), is urging the public to patronize only hand sanitizers approved by the Authority.
In view of this, the FDA has presented a list of registered sanitizers to prevent the public from patronizing unregistered and substandard ones.
The approved hand sanitizers include AFRICA HAND SANITIZER (Ethanol 70%), 2BD HAND SANITIZER (Ethanol 80%), 360 GERMI KLEAN HAND SANITIZER (70% Isopropyl Alcohol), 360 NATURALS HAND SANITIZER GEL (70% Isopropyl Alcohol) and AABL HAND SANITIZER GEL (Ethanol 70%).
This was contained in a statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer of the FDA, Mrs. Delese Darko.
According to the statement, the move is to promote the use of effective hand sanitizers and help fight against the spread of the Coronavirus in Ghana.
The FDA states that it is a criminal offense to offer for sale unregistered or substandard hand sanitizers to consumers.
Attached below is the full list of the FDA approved hand sanitizers.
