Drug recall

Drug recall: Insight Pharmaceuticals, a Prestige Consumer Healthcare Inc. company (“Insight”), is voluntarily recalling two lots of TING® 2% Miconazole Nitrate Athlete’s Foot Spray Antifungal Spray Powder to the consumer level.

A recent review by our manufacturer and their third- party lab found that samples from two lots of the product contained elevated levels of benzene.

While benzene is not an ingredient in any Ting® Antifungal Spray products, the review showed that unexpected levels of benzene came from the propellant that sprays the product out of the can.

Importantly, no other lots of TING® 2% Miconazole Nitrate Athlete’s Foot Spray Antifungal Spray Powder (either before or after these batch codes) and no other Ting® Antifungal Spray products are in the scope of this drug recall and may continue to be used by consumers safely and as intended.

Risk Statement:

Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen. Exposure to benzene can occur by inhalation, orally, and through the skin and it potentially can result in cancers including leukemia and blood cancer of the bone marrow and blood disorders which can be life threatening.

Insight is recalling these products out of an abundance of caution. To date, the Company has not received any serious adverse events related to this drug recall.

Benzene is ubiquitous in the environment. Humans around the world have daily exposures to it indoors and outdoors from multiple sources.

TING® 2% Miconazole Nitrate Athlete’s Foot Spray Antifungal Spray Powder is packaged in green and white aerosol cans with Lot codes located on the bottom of the can.
