CPSC and So's U.S.A. Company Announce Recall of "Wood Lock Medicated Balm"

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), So's U.S.A. Company Inc. of Los Angeles is voluntarily recalling over 170,000 bottles of Wood Lock Medicated Balm, imported from China. The product, containing more than five percent of methyl salicylate, does not have the required child resistant packaging. Methyl Salicylate can poison young children if ingested, seriously injuring or killing them.

CPSC and So's are not aware of any injuries involving this product. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

Consumers use the medicated balm, packaged in .85- and 1.7-fluid-ounce glass bottles with black plastic caps, to relieve muscle aches and pains. A label on the bottle reads in part, "WOOD LOCK Medicated Balm," with Chinese characters and a photo of a man's face in the center.

Wood Lock Medicated Balm


Drug stores, health food stores, Chinese groceries, and health stores sold the balm in California and Oregon from 1994 through July 1996 for approximately $2.30 for the .85-oz. bottle and $3.45 for the 1.7-oz. bottle.

Consumers should return the balm to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information, consumers should call So's toll-free at (888) 221-3496 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m PST.

The Food and Drug Administration referred this matter to CPSC.
