Hand Sanitiser Used In Some Schools Removed From Government Approved List

A hand sanitiser, which is one of 11 used in schools has been recalled after it's been proven to cause skin issues, headaches and respiratory issues.


The Department of Agriculture say 'Virapro Hand Sanitiser' has been removed from a list of approved products due to public health concerns.
Tests carried out by the Department shows the product doesn't comply with regulations.
The company which makes the product has been told to recall all of its bottles immediately.
It is advising schools to make local arrangements to buy other products and says they should maximise hand washing.
And if a Prinicipal decides it is not safe to open without stocks of hand sanitiser they can close early for the mid-term break.
