WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) banned a roll-on pain reliever because the package is not child-resistant. The product is now under recall. The CPSC flagged Rapid Alivio Pain Relieving Roll-On manufactured by Sanvall Enterprises according to a report appearing on Fox 13 Memphis’ website. Sanvall Enterprises is based out of Doral, Florida. Sanvall Enterprises markets the roll-on pain reliever in a white plastic bottle that features of white cap, along with a label in white, blue, and red. The bottle contains 3-fluid ounces of medication. The active ingredient in the roll-on pain reliever, methyl salicylate, is harmful to children if swallowed.
The recalled roll-on pain reliever’s label conspicuously contains the phrases “Maximum Strength Relieving Liquid,” “Para Dolor Muscular,” and “Rapid Alivio.” The company identified four lots that must be recalled. The lots are numbered as 18032201, 19040501, 18032301, and 19052801. Those numbers could be located at the bottom of the bottle. The product contains the UPC 605100014225, which is located on the side of the bottle’s label.
Consumers who reside in the Miami area are at a higher risk for encountering the recalled product than other areas. Anyone who bought a recalled item must remove it from a child’s reach immediately. The CPSC said that 5,400 bottles must be thrown away. The consumer has the option of contacting the company for a refund.
Consumption of methyl salicylate could poison the person who consumed the compound. Accordingly, all products which contain methyl salicylate must be sold with a child-resistant cap and packaging. Otherwise, a child could die or fall violently ill if he or she accidentally consumed the product.
The CPSC reported that the 5,400 units under recall were sold between August of 2016, and June of 2019. Most of the bottles were sold in Walmart and Navarro Discount Pharmacy in the south of Florida. No injuries or deaths were reported to the manufacturer or the CPSC.
