Voluntary nationwide recall on Banana Boat Sun Care products - CBS 5 - KPHO

Voluntary nationwide recall on Banana Boat Sun Care products

Posted: Updated:

Several Banana Boat Sun Care products are voluntarily being recalled nationwide by Energizer Holdings Inc. due to a potential risk of the products igniting on the skin if contact is made with a source of ignition before the product is completely dry.

The over-the-counter sunscreens being recalled were sold nationwide from January of 2010 through Sept. 30, 2012.

Energizer believes there is a problem associated with the delivery system, specifically the size of the valve opening. On the recalled products the spray opening size dispenses more than what the industry says is typical. Since the sprays are dispensing too much, it is taking much longer for the product to dry on your skin, and as a result, if you happen to come in contact with a flame or spark before the sunscreen is dry, there is a potential for the product to ignite.
