PhotoPain Relief Naturally is recalling four lots of 4% lidocaine topical cream & liquid gel products.

Analysis found the products to have microbiological contamination and higher than the labeled potency for lidocaine.

The risks from a contaminated pre-tattoo product are greater since the skin is being traumatized immediately after application and tattooing is known to have infectious complications.

Additionally, use of lidocaine greater than the label claim may increase the risk of methemoglobinemia, a blood disorder in which an abnormal amount of methemoglobin is produced.

There are no reports of adverse events to date.

These following products, packaged in black jars or bottles with metallic red or green lettering and lots & expiration dates listed on a gold colored expiration sticker on the back of the product, are being recalled:
