Clinical Resolution Laboratory of Brea, Calif., is recalling about 26,500 packages of Numb 100 Topical Anesthetic Cream.

The packaging is not child resistant as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. The pain relieving cream contains lidocaine, posing a risk of poisoning to young children if they put it on their skin or ingest it.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves Numb 100 Topical Anesthetic Cream in a 1.35-fluid oz. white jar with a rounded cap. Numb 100 Topical Anesthetic Cream and a blue cross are printed on the jar’s front panel.

The cream, manufactured in the U.S., was sold at Laser Jet and other health and beauty stores nationwide and online at and from May 2017, through November 2018, for about $18.

What to do

Consumers should immediately place the recalled topical anesthetic out of reach of children and contact Clinical Resolution Laboratory for a full refund, a free replacement cream, or free replacement child-resistant cap.

Consumers may contact Clinical Resolution Laboratory toll-free at (877) 566-9687 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday through Friday, by email at or online at for more information.
