Child poison risk leads to recalls of topical anesthetic cream, gel

The packaging does not meet child-resistant specifications.

Recalls of two topical anesthetics were announced Thursday because they don't meet child-resistant packaging specifications, leading to a risk of poisoning.

The products are Numb 100 Topical Anesthetic Cream and EZY Gel Topical Anesthetic Gel. They both contain Lidocaine, posing a risk of poisoning to young children.

The recalled Numb 100 Topical Anesthetic Cream comes in a 1.35-fluid ounce white jar with a rounded cap. Numb 100 Topical Anesthetic Cream and a blue cross are printed on the jar’s front panel. Customers who have this should keep it out of a child's reach. They can contact Clinical Resolution Laboratory for a full refund, a free replacement cream, or free replacement child-resistant cap.
