Hand sanitiser sold at major petrol stations across Australia will be pulled from shelves after it was found to contain the wrong concentration of alcohol
A hand santiser sold at United Petroleum stations will be pulled from shelves after it was discovered it didn't have enough alcohol content to be effective.
联合石油公司(United Petroleum Station)出售的一款手桑提酒被发现酒精含量不足，无法生效，因此将被下架。
Consumer group CHOICE conducted its third round of tests on hand sanitiser brands to discover whether the products met the 60 per cent recommended alcohol threshold.
Consumer Group Choice对洗手液品牌进行了第三轮测试，以确定产品是否达到推荐的60%酒精含量门槛。
White Knight Hand Sanitiser's 500mL bottle was the only one of the 29 products tested that did not meet the standard.
It is only the second product CHOICE found during three rounds of testing that does not meet the standard.
The hand sanitiser only contained 52 per cent of alcohol despite labels claiming it had 75 per cent.
'We contacted the distributor of the product, White Knight Sanitation Pty Ltd, an associated company of United Petroleum, to ask them for comment,' CHOICE said.
Choose说，我们联系了该产品的分销商联合石油公司(United Petroleum)旗下的白衣骑士环卫有限公司(White Knight Sanitation Pty Ltd)，请他们发表评论。
'They told us that the product was manufactured by Teddie Group Pty Ltd, who had been contracted to produce White Knight's hand sanitisers.'
The product is in the process of being pulled from the shelves at United Petroleum outlets and testing of the sanitiser is being undertaken.
'They also told us they had previously cross-checked the volume of ethanol supplied against sanitiser produced by the manufacturer, and found it was consistent with the information provided by the maker. They also spoke to Teddie Group after learning of our results, who stood by their claim that the product contains at least 75 per cent alcohol,' the investigation said.
The investigation is part of CHOICE's campaign for more government regulation of the alcohol content in hand sanitisers.
The consumer watchdog wants hand sanitisers to contain at least 60 per cent alcohol, labels that are easy to understand, and spot testing to make sure the labels on bottles accurately describe the contents.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted United Petroleum and Teddie Group for comment.
