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.
Below is a list of the recalled products with their UPC codes:
Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 15 Continuous Spray 6oz7965600979-8
Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 30 Continuous Spray 6oz7965600878-4
Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 30 Bonus Continuous Spray 8oz7965600955-2
Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 50 Continuous Spray 3ct 6oz7965605464-4
If you have any of these products, Energizer is advising you to stop using them.
Engerizer is warning consumers to take extra precautions when using these products not to be near anything that could iginite a flame. You should not smoke while wearing these sunscreens.
Energizer is in the process of notifying retailers to stop selling the products.
There have been four reports where burns have been reported associated with Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 30 and 50 here in the United States and one in Canada.
Anyone with questions or complaints regarding the recall you can contact Energizer by calling Consumer Affairs at 1-800-SAFESUN (1-800-723-3786) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time or by sending an email to SUNCARE@customerfollowup.info.
