Pain Relievers Recalled Over Child-Safety Issue
By: April Carson
A number of popular pain medication have been recalled because they might cause poisoning.
After discovering that four Hempväna items do not meet the requirements of child-resistant packaging, Telebrands issued a recall. The packing can be opened with ease, posing a poisoning hazard to youngsters who ingest or touch it.
The following is a list of the pain relief products recalled:
15436 – UPC: 097298053542 – Hempväna Ultra Strength Pain Relief Cream with Lidocaine – 4 oz. jar with twist-off lid and green and red label
14597 – UPC: 097298052583 – Hempväna Ultra Strength Pain Relief Cream Night with Lidocaine – 4 oz. jar with twist-off lid and green and purple label
14460 – UPC: 097298052170 – Hempväna Ultra Strength Pain Relief Cream Turmeric with Lidocaine – 4 oz. jar with twist-off lid and green and orange label
15440 – UPC: 097298053566 – Hempväna Pain Relieving Hand & Body Lotion with Lidocaine – 8 oz. bottle with pump dispenser and green and red label
Lidocaine is a pain medication that must be packaged in child-resistant packaging under the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA).
Even skin contact with lidocaine may be dangerous for children.
The recall affected about 183,000 units sold by Telebrands and were available for $20 from April 2021 through January 2022.
The items were available in retail and online outlets, including Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS, and other shops.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada have announced a joint recall of several types of pain-relieving products that may pose a child safety hazard.
There have been no reported cases of injury, but the company is urging customers to stop using the pain relievers and place them out of sight and reach of children. Telebrands has information on how to dispose of the recalled products properly and safely.
The company will offer a refund for the product or a free child-resistant closure for products that come in jars.
Customers will also receive a $15 digital coupon to use on other Hempväna products.
The recall is an important reminder for parents to always be aware of potential safety hazards when using pain relieving products with young children. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported so far.
The products themselves are safe to use, but buyers without children should still make sure that they are out of reach and sight of children if they continue to use the products. If you have young children, however, it is strongly recommended that you dispose of the recalled pain relievers immediately and replace them with a safer alternative.
