Yahoo News:"The Food and Drug Administration warned consumers Monday not to use skin products made by Clarcon because of high levels of disease-causing bacteria found during a recent inspection.
Clarcon Biological Chemistry Laboratory Inc. of Roy, Utah, issued a voluntary recall of some skin sanitizers and skin protectants marketed under several different brand names, the FDA said in a statement.
Consumers should not use any Clarcon products and should throw them away, the FDA said."
If you use hand sanitizer or antimicrobial skin products, you should check HERE to see if you have a bottle of bacteria. According to the article, the bacteria is a kick ass variety that can cause infection to the point of surgery and permanent damage. I don't know about you, but, that grossed me out. How the hell did it get in the products?
I don't use hand sanitizer, because there's something about it that seems creepy to me. I don't know what it is exactly, but, I'd rather just wait and wash my hands. I remember episodes of Jon and Kate plus 8 where she didn't teach the kids to wash after pottying (and she was in her own damn house!) and she handed them all some kind of hand sanitizer, for the camera, of course. I remember thinking, how gross and when the camera isn't there, they probably don't wash their hands. Which has nothing to do with anything, I'm just remembering that gross fact that stuck in my head. Just wash your hands, man. Use home made soap, is possible, then you know exactly what's in it. Even better. I swear, you can't trust anyone in big business. Just running water will remove most bacteria.
The only thing that's grossed me out as much as this story was contaminated infant formula. WTF is wrong with people?? Oh, yeah. Money. People think I'm just a paranoid old radical who thinks everone plots against us. It's because they do.
