room, including a case where alcohol used as an antiseptic pooled under the surgical drapes
in an operating room and caused a fire when a cautery instrument was used. Alcohol gel was not implicated. To minimize the

The US FDA controls antimicrobial handsoaps and sanitizers as over-the-counter drugs because they are intended for topical
anti-microbial use to prevent disease in humans.  The FDA requires strict labeling which informs consumers as to proper use of this OTC drug and dangers to avoid, including
warning adults not to ingest, not to use in the eyes, to keep out of the reach of children, and to allow
children to use only under adult supervision.  According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, there were nearly 12,000 cases of hand sanitizer ingestion
in 2006.  If ingested, alcohol-based hand sanitizers can cause alcohol poisoning in small children. However, the Centers for Disease Control recommends using hand sanitizer with children to promote good hygiene, under
supervision, and furthermore recommends parents pack hand sanitizer for their children when traveling, to avoid their contracting
disease from dirty hands.
