Nature Relief Wart and Mole Remover Recall: Risk of Chemical Burns

Federal health regulators are warning that Nature Relief wart and mole remover can cause severe skin burns around the face, eyes and genitals. 

A Nature Relief Instant Wart and Mole Remover recall was announced on June 27, after the FDA received a report of at least one user who suffered burns badly enough to require medical attention.

According to the FDA, the wart and mole removal formula can be particularly damaging to sensitive areas of the skin due to the active ingredient, calcium oxide.

The wart and mole remover recall has led to all sales and operations of Nature Relief being suspended. According to a press release, the company consists of one employee who was making direct-to-consumer internet sales for the last five months. It is unclear whether the one employee actually made the product or was simply distributing it under their own label. Nature Relief Instant Wart and Mole Remover was the company’s only product.

The Nature Relief Instant Wart and Mole Remover was sold as a kit that contained items labeled “Repair Cream,” “Antiseptic Wash,” and “Triple Antibiotic Ointment,” as well as toothpicks, cotton balls, swabs and nail files.

The FDA warned that moles should always be looked at by a licensed medical professional to ensure that they are not cancerous. Untreated moles increase the risk of melanoma, a form of skin cancer. Self-treatment of such moles could delay an early diagnosis that could save a person’s life, the FDA warned.

The FDA recommends that consumers stop using the recalled wart and mole removal kit immediately, place the contents in a plastic bag and discard them into the garbage. Consumers with questions can call 1-888-646-6399 or email the company at support@naturerelief.com.
