Is ethanol-based hand sanitizer po isonous?

Is it "denatured" with methyl (or other poisonous) alcohol like the ethyl alcohol from the hardware store is? Or is it as safe as any 160 proof drink would be? The bottles I have don't have any "poison" warnings on them; only the caution that it's for "external use only".

    hand sanitizers do NOT contain ethanol

    they have methanol in them which is safe
