The Journal Gazette

Hush Anesthetic Inc. of Miami Lakes, Florida, has recalled about 275,000 anesthetic gels, sprays and foam soaps because the packaging is not child-resistant, posing a poisoning risk to young children, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The recall involves Hush gel, spray and foam soap products containing 4% lidocaine, the commission said in a statement.

The gel and spray were sold in 2- and 4-ounce sizes and the foam soap in a 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 items were sold nationwide from January 2009 through November 2018 for between $15 and $46, the commission said.

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

Hush can be reached toll-free at 888-723-3730 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fort Wayne time, by email at or online at and click on "Recall" for more information.
