Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said prison laborers would be brewing hand sanitizer for the state during the coronavirus outbreak, but prison workers claim that’s not the case.

Prison workers at Great Meadow Correctional Facility, the facility Cuomo said would be making its own hand sanitizer, told Vice News they were actually taking pre-made hand sanitizer and pouring it into bottles labeled with the “New York State Clean” brand.

The article goes on to state the following:

A representative for the New York Department of Corrections told the outlet the hand sanitizer was coming from an outside vendor but declined to identify it.

On March 9, Cuomo said prison labor would be making hand sanitizer so that it would be cheaper for the state.

He even bragged about its quality and unique scent.

“We are making it the state of New York,” Cuomo said.


Vice News reports that a worker revealed that they are filling gallon-sized bottles and adding the state’s logo, not producing the product itself.
