After five reports of people being burned after applying Banana Boat sunscreen, the makers of the product are recalling 23 different types of spray-on products.
Energizer Holdings, Inc., based in St. Louis, stated the recall was “due to a potential risk of product igniting on the skin if contact is made with a source of ignition before the product is completely dry.”
Reportedly, the products’ spray valve releases more sunscreen than typical for a spray, therefore resulting in longer drying time which raises the risk for it to become flammable.
Energizer Holdings, Inc. has voluntarily decided to recall the products. The recalled products include Ultra Mist Sport, Sport, Ultra Mist Ultra Defense , and Kids with SPFs of 15, 30, 50 and 85.
Since the launch of Ultra Mist, more than 20 million units have been purchased.
Consumers who have the faulty products should discontinue use immediately.
