The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has warned GoJo Industries, the maker of Purell, to stop claiming the hand sanitizer can prevent Ebola, the flu, norovirus and other sicknesses.
The FDA says the claims that the product prevents these illnesses are unproven, and should not mislead consumers.
GoJo Industries was also told to remove the claim that Purell prevents kids from missing school from the company website.
The company says it plans to comply with the FDA requests immediately.
While some of the company's claims may be unfounded, they still say Purell is safe to use and can be part of a good hygiene routine.
