Fake hand sanitizer sold at Dollarama recalled across Canada

Health Canada has issued yet another recall for hand sanitizer.

On Monday, the health agency issued a warning regarding a counterfeit version of Daily Shield hand sanitizer was found for sale at a Dollarama store in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

“The counterfeit version is labelled with NPN 80098979, Lot 6942; Expiry May 2023 and is sold in a 250 mL format,” said Health Canada.

“As the counterfeit version of Daily Shield hand sanitizer is unauthorized and made with an unknown formulation, it may not be effective at killing bacteria and viruses, and may pose serious risks to health.”

The product is a fake version of the authorized Daily Shield hand sanitizer, which has been made with an unknown formulation.

According to Health Canada, this means it “may not be effective at killing bacteria and viruses, and may pose serious risks to health.”

While the counterfeit product has only been found for dale at the one location, Dollarama has agreed to stop selling the Daily Shield hand sanitizer in its stores.
