A new warning this morning about hand sanitizer.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says people are getting sick and even dying from ingesting it.

The CDC said 15 adults in Arizona and New Mexico were hospitalized between May and June for Methanol Poisoning, after consuming alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Four of them died, six developed seizures while in the hospital, and three were discharged with new visual impairments.
