Wellspring, of Monsey, N.Y., recalled about 15,000 containers of Welmate Lidocaine Numbing Cream due to potential safety risk.
The packaging of the product, which contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is not child-resistant as required by law, posing a risk of poisoning to young children if they put it on their skin or ingest it.
This recall involves Welmate Lidocaine Numbing Cream in a 113-g (4-oz.) white jar with a blue, orange and green label and a white cap.
The numbing cream was manufactured in India and was sold online.
The company urges consumers to immediately stop using the recalled cream, store it in a safe location out of reach of children and contact Wellspring for instructions on how to dispose of the product to receive a full refund.
There have been no reported incidents to date.
