- ‘Recall’ of popular pain relievers is ordered over poisoning risk.
- These are various Hempvana brand products.
- Learn what to do if you have one of these pain relievers at home.
Be careful if you bought any of these pain relief products. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported a recall of four different products from a well-known brand of pain relievers, according to BGR.
Telebrands announced the recall of Hempvana products after discovering that the packaging of some of its products doesn’t meet child-resistance requirements. But what does this mean? By not complying with the packaging requirements, children can easily open the package and run the risk of being poisoning by ingestion or even contact with the skin.
Which Hempvana pain relievers were recalled?
The company announced the recall of the following four Hempvana pain relief products: Hempväna Ultra Strength Pain Relief Cream with Lidocaine – 4 oz. twist-top jar with green and red label (15436 – UPC: 097298053542), Hempväna Ultra Strength Pain Relief Cream Night with Lidocaine – 4 oz. Twist-top jar with green and purple label (14597 – UPC: 097298052583), Hempväna Ultra Strength Pain Relief Cream Turmeric with Lidocaine – 4 oz. twist top bottle with green and orange label (14460 – UPC: 097298052170) and finally Hempväna Pain Relieving Hand & Body Lotion with Lidocaine – 8 oz. bottle with pump dispenser and green and red label (15440 – UPC: 097298053566).
The recall warning for the four pain relievers was issued by the CPSC. All products contain lidocaine. According to the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA), this substance must be placed in child-resistant containers. However, the above Hempvana products do not comply with this regulation.
What is the risk being posed by these products?
According to BGR, it is possible for children to open the containers and potentially swallow or touch the lidocaine, a substance that is dangerous. Even contact with the skin can cause poisoning.
The Telebrands company sold around 183,000 units of the products in question in retail stores and online, meaning that you should be careful if you bought any of these pain relievers directly from the company’s website, Amazon, eBay, Walmart, RiteAid, CVS and various other retailers.
What should you do if you have any of the Hempvana products?
Although Hempvana’s recall announcement says there have been no reported cases of injuries related to the pain relief products, the company urged customers to stop using all four products and store them in a safe place out of the reach of small children.
Buyers can contact the company for information on how to safely dispose of the recalled pain relievers. In addition, Telebrands will offer a full product refund or a free child resistant cap for products that come in jars.
