ALOCANE Emergency Burn Pads are being recalled due to a failure to meet child resistant closure requirements. This puts children at risk of poisoning if they are able to get ahold of these burn pads. The pads contain lidocaine, which can poison a child if it is ingested. At this time, approximately 153,000 packages of these emergency burn pads are being recalled because they don’t meet the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, so consumers are being asked to check their medical supplies.
