Mystic Shield Protection Topical Solution contains undeclared methanol.

Transliquid Technologies LLC is voluntarily recalling all Mystic Shield Protection Topical Solution hand sanitizer, manufactured by Mystic Intl S.A. de C.V in Mexico City, and packaged in 8.45 ounce/250 ml bottles, to the consumer level. The firm’s independent testing found the products contain undeclared methanol.
Substantial methanol exposure “could result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death. Although all persons using these products on their hands are at risk, young children who accidentally ingest these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk for methanol poisoning.” 
To date, Transliquid Technologies LLC has not received any reports of adverse events related to the product in question, according to the announcement distributed by the US FDA.
The product was distributed between May 21, 2020-June 30, 2020 to select wholesale and retail customers in California, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Texas.
Transliquid Technologies LLC has accounted for and prevented distribution of a substantial majority of the product at the consumer level and is arranging for its return.
