Always worked for me, so this is not a principal problem of the
sanitizer. Maybe your quarantine.mbox got corrupted somehow?

The only solution I can figure is fixing it manually with a text
editor. Make a copy of the file and try deleting individual mails one by
one until mutt accepts it, but maybe someone comes up with a more
elegant solution.
