Costa Rica issued a national alert about potentially tainted alcohol after 19 people were confirmed to have died over the past few weeks from methanol poisoning. The government said several alcohol brands were tainted with methanol, a poisonous alcohol found in solvents and antifreeze.

Since early June, 14 men and five women across Costa Rica have died from methanol poisoning, according to the Ministry of Health. They ranged in age from 32 to 72. Seven of the deaths were in the San Jose province, which includes San Jose, the most populous city in Costa Rica.
