Nova Pharmaceuticals Australasia Pty Ltd—Great Life Benifex Eucalyptus Oil 100%
What are the defects?
The child-resistant closure (CRC) was found on some bottles not to be fully engaged. The bottles could consequently be opened without first pressing down on the cap.
What are the hazards?
Eucalyptus oil is listed as a Schedule 6 poison in the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons and therefore poses serious health risks if accidentally consumed.
What should consumers do?
The bottle can be re-capped correctly by simply twisting the cap shut tightly. There is no concern with the quality of the ingredient.
