SafeHands Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizers

In August 2020, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Recreational Equipment, Inc. and SafeHands Solutions, LLC for allegedly misleadingly advertising that SafeHands Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizers with the active ingredient benzalkonium chloride will “kill[] 99.99% of germs” when, according to plaintiffs, the FDA does not allow such advertising claims and the CDC states that benzalkonium chloride hand sanitizers are “less reliable against certain bacteria and viruses” than alcohol-based hand sanitizers. (Merola et al v. Recreational Equipment, Inc. and SafeHands Solutions, LLC, Case No. 20-cv-11504, D. Mass.)
