Recall Alert: UberScientific Recalls Topical Anesthetic Due to Risk of Poisoning

On the Child Safety Store blog, we aim to keep parents informed of any possible dangers. Today, we’re signal-boosting an important product recall alert. 

Recently, the company UberScientific recalled its Uber Numb Topical Anesthetic Cream and Uber Numb Spray. This is reportedly due to the products’ packaging. It is not child resistant, as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. Both the pain relieving cream and spray contain lidocaine. This substance poses a risk of poisoning young children if they put it on their skin or ingest it.

Fortunately, there have not been any reported injuries related to this product. As of today, this seems to be simply a precautionary recall.

What To Do if You Bought These Products 

If you are in possession of either of these products, you’ll want to make sure they are removed from your home. Before anything else, make sure to keep it away from your children. After all, the biggest issue with the product was the possibility of it accidentally getting into the hands of your little ones. 

Consumers are advised to contact UberScientific to receive full instructions on how to receive a free child-resistant replacement or a full product refund to make up for any inconveniences caused by this situation. Poisoning is a very serious danger. Parents should act immediately to keep children out of harm’s way.
