41 people die after drinking bath lotion with antifreeze in Siberia

At least 41 people have died from poisoning after consuming a bath lotion containing alcohol in the Siberian city of Irkutsk, Russia’s top investigative agency says.

A total of 57 people have been hospitalized, with some in a coma, the Investigative Committee says.

A sticker on the bath lotion said that it contains some 93 percent of ethyl alcohol, hawthorn extract, lemon oil, diethyl phthalate and glycerol. A chemical probe of the bath lotion has shown that in reality, Boyaryshnik (Hawthorn) contains methyl alcohol and antifreeze, Russia’s Investigative Committee said.

The lotion bottles were marked with warnings that they are not for internal use.

  • right, they have this label, but thats not really what its distributed for. apparently, these "tonics" are made by illegal distilleries and are intended with impoverished alcoholics in mind. Being labeled as "bath lotion" or other external use products, they are able to sell them at kiosks and in vending machines, and this "surrogate alcohol" is a lot more widely used than i ever thought.  these users are urged to at least pick vodka instead, but it's sold for so much less. one guy even said he liked the taste better and he didnt wake up with a headache. Apparently this batch however, was very different, but people have said stuff like this has happened before surrounding this low key epidemic of surrogate alcoholism. yikes, i had noooo idea at all, ive never really thought much about alcohol abuse in other systems/countries

    Years ago, we went out for a three day, military excersize.  The forecast was for good weather, so, because it was summer time, we dressed for the weather.  The day after we got out to the field, the temperature dropped by 30 degrees c.  The sky also dropped about 6 inches of snow on us.  Despite the conditions, we stayed out and completed the training.

    Afterward, back in garrison, our CO bought us a variety of liquor to celebrate getting through a brutal time.  As we were all sitting around having drinks, one of the guys got out his shaving kit and started drinking his aftershave.  Some people just prefer other things to drink, even when they have legitimate booze right in front of them.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    Light and frothy with strong aromatic qualities. Tends to foam around the mouth.
