The Danish Environmental Protection Agency recalls two more disinfection products containing the active substance PHMB. The substance must not be used because of unacceptable health and environmental risks.

On April 22, 2020, the Environmental Protection Agency's Chemical Inspectorate ordered the company Hygicare ApS to recall the products "Hygicare Disinfectant for surfaces" and "Hygicare disinfectant for Hands" from the dealers and users.

"Hygicare ApS has used an active ingredient PHMB in their disinfectant products, which the EU's common biocide approval system back in 2018 has assessed should not be used in a number of disinfectant products," said Kim Holm Boesen, head of the Environment Agency.
