Members of the public have been advised to stop using all Virapro-branded sanitary products as several of them are not authorised for use in Ireland.

The advisory was issued by the Department of Agriculture on Friday night after a hand sanitiser made by the company was recalled over safety fears.

The hand sanitiser was recalled as "prolonged use of such sanitiser may cause dermatitis, eye irritation, upper respiratory system irritation and headaches".

The product had been used in many schools and students across the country, however it's unknown at this point if other products from the range were in use in schools.

“The company concerned has been advised to withdraw all of these products from the market,” the department said in a statement.

“The department is therefore advising, on a precautionary basis, that all sanitary products in the Virapro range should be returned to the supplier.

“Members of the public are advised to stop using these products because they are not authorised for use.”
