Icy Hot Heat Therapy Products Recalled Due to Skin Irritation and Burns

Comments Off

Chattem, Inc., in conjunction with the FDA, is recalling Icy Hot Heat Therapy products, and some consumer samples that were given out for a limited promotional basis.

Chattem is recalling these products because it has received some consumer reports of first, second and third degree burns as well as skin irritation resulting from consumer use or possible misuse of these products.

The following products are being recalled:
Icy Hot Heat Therapy Air Activated Heat- Back
Icy Hot Heat Therapy Air Activated Heat- Arm, Neck, and Leg
Icy Hot Heat Therapy Air Activated Heat- Arm, Neck, and Leg single consumer use sample. 3 oz. Aspercreme Pain Relieving Creme.

The consumer use samples were packaged in yellow or red cartons that contained the 3 oz. pouch of Aspercreme Pain Relieving Creme and were only given away for a promotion of the product. The carton is labeled with “Icy Hot Heat Therapy Air Activated Heat”. If the samples were removed from their holding carton the product is packaged in a red plastic pouch that is labeled with Icy Hot Heat Therapy and either Back or Arm/Neck and Leg.

These products are available in food, drug, and mass merchandisers across the nation. The company is making sure that all recalled products are being removed from stores.
