Thank you to a BJ’s employee in our FB group for letting us know the Blumen Hand Sanitizer sold at BJ’s Wholesale club stores is being recalled.
If 2020 wasn’t much of a year already, the hand sanitizer we previous couldn’t function without is now dangerous.
You won’t find this hand sanitizer online any more either. Thousands of bottles are being recalled. It is due to sanitizers containing toxic wood alcohol. You can read more about it here.
You can read the recall from the FDA here.
From I have found Costco sells this brand too and has issued a recall on it here.
UPDATAE 8/7: ALL BLUMEN Hand sanitizers sold at BJs are now being recalled.
UPDATE: Here is the release from BJs on 7/15.
Below is the letter BJs has sent out to members as well. You can dispose of the hand sanitizer to a nearest recycling center.
4E Brands is voluntarily recalling select lots of Blumen Hand Sanitizer, 17 oz., due to possible contamination with methyl alcohol. Out of an abundance of caution, 4E Brands requests that members discontinue the use of this product immediately and dispose of it in accordance with local regulations.
BJ’s Wholesale Club, Inc. only carried one item, BLUMEN Clear Advance Hand Sanitizer, 17 oz. (Article 248094; UPC: 814266024096), affected by the recall.
Please visit https://www.blumensanitizerrecall.expertinquiry.com/ and enter your product’s UPC and the lot number to check if your product is included in this recall and, if so, to request a refund. You can find these numbers printed on the bottle (see below photo for location of the lot number). 4E Brands anticipates that it will take four to six weeks for members to receive their refund once they have submitted their request. Please do not return this product to your local BJ’s Wholesale Club.
Here you will find the press release issued by 4E Brands providing the details of this recall.
Consumers who have purchased the Blumen Hand Sanitizer within the scope of this recall and who have questions not answered on the website above are advised to contact 4E Brands at 1 (888) 843-0254 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET or by email at 4EBrands8797@stericycle.com with any questions. Again, please do not return the product to BJ’s.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
I personally have this one in my car right now. It’s opened and BJs will take it back open or not. So bring in those Blumen hand sanitizers to your local BJs for a refund. be sure to call first many have messaged me saying their club has accepted them and given a full refund while others are not until the letter is sent in the mail.
Here is the other brand of sanitizer we have seen at BJs this year. I have not heard if this one is being recalled. I will update the post as soon as I find out.
Looks like it’s just good ol hand washing again 🙂
