275,000 gels, sprays and foam soaps recalled

(Meredith) – Hush is recalling 275,000 of its anesthetic gels, sprays and foam soaps after discovering the caps failed to meet the child resistant closure requirement, which could lead to a risk of poisoning.

The packaging is not child resistant as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. The products contain lidocaine, posing a risk of poisoning to young children if they put the product on their skin or ingest it, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

This recall involves Hush gel, spray and foam soap products containing 4 percent lidocaine. The gel and spray were sold in 2 and 4-ounce sizes and the foam soap was sold in 1.7-ounce size.

The bottles are white or black and have printed in green at the front the Hush logo or the phrase Hush and the type of product.

The Drug Facts label is on the back.

The lot number and expiration date are stamped on the bottom of the container. All lot numbers included in the recall. 

Consumers should immediately place the recalled products out of the reach of children and contact Hush for a full refund, a free replacement cream or free replacement child-resistant cap.

No injuries have been reported.

The products were sold at the following locations from January 2009 through November 2018 for between $15 and $46:
