The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission posted on December 10 that Dollar Tree has recalled approximately 325,000 units of Assured Burn Relief Gel after discovering that the packaging was not child resistant, which was required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, according to the report. The burn relief gel has lidocaine, which poses poisoning risks when swallowed. There were no injuries reported as of late.
The recalled product comes in a blue box, with a blue and white tube inside labeled “Burn Relief Gel.” The packaging has a UPC bar code of 6 39277 09311 0. The burn relief gel was sold nationwide at various Dollar Tree stores from March 2015 until October 2015.
The manufacturer advised consumers to immediately stop the use of the gel, and take them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
