A popular sunscreen is withdrawn from the market because it could contain a carcinogen
New York (CNN) — Sunscreen is marketed as helping to protect against skin cancer, but now some lots of a popular brand are being voluntarily recalled because they may contain a carcinogen.
An internal review of Banana Boat Hair & Scalp Sunscreen Spray SPF 30 found that some samples contained trace amounts of benzene, which is classified as a human carcinogen. Edgewell Personal Care Co., maker of Banana Boat products, issued a nationwide recall on three lots of the sunscreen spray.
The recalled lots have expiration dates of December 2022, February 2023, or April 2024.
The message said that although benzene is not an ingredient in Banana Boat products, “unexpected levels” of the carcinogen were found in the aerosol propellant.
Edgewell Personal Care Company said consumers should dispose of the affected product and refunds will be offered. You can find more information about the recall of this product here.
