N24 Staff Writer, KATHMANDU: The Department of Drug Administration is all set to take action against five industries for producing non standard sanitizers, thereby posing threat to human health.

Four such industries from Kathmandu and one from Bhaktapur district were blacklisted for producing sanitizer with the use of toxic chemical methanol. The Department said it would impose fine along with compensation of the damage caused by them and even close the industries for ever.

‘Instant hand sanitizer original’ produced by Housing Shop and Chemical, ‘advanced hand sanitizer’ produced by Chemical Food and Industry, ‘instant hand sanitizer: refreshing gel’ by Search Chem Cum Herbal Product, ‘Suryamukhi hand sanitizer’ by Suryamukhi Herbal Product from Kathmandu, and by ‘instant hand sanitizer’ by Kayakalpa Industry from Bhaktapur were found using poisonous methanol, said Department Director General Narayan Prasad Dhakal.

The Department had taken samples from the market and tested in its laboratory which revealed the fact that they were hazardous to human health. The people are appealed to not use these sanitizers.
