Banana Boat Sunscreen Recall announced for Fire Hazard

Blue skies with clouds - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration announced the voluntary recall of several Banana Boat sunscreen products with the continuous spray mist. Before the sunscreen is completely dry, the person wearing the product could potentially catch on fire if exposed to an ignition source.

Energizer Holdings Inc. (NYSE: ENR) based out of St. Louis, MO are the distributors of the Banana Boat branded products. They have voluntarily recalled 23 different products (see recall list below) that spray or mist the sunscreen on the skin. The company distributed the recalled products nationwide between January of 2010 and September 30, 2012.



The company thinks the problem is related to the size of the spray valve opening, which provides more sunscreen to the skin than expected. The product could take longer to dry on the skin, which puts the person at risk for catching on fire. The company received four reports of people being burned from using Banana Boat SPORT Ultramist SPF 30 and 50 products. Three of the events were reported in the US, and one event occurred in Canada.

To address the problem, the Banana Boat sunscreen maker is notifying retailers to stop selling the recalled products. They will also come up with a new Banana Boat continuous spray product soon. There is a warning on these spray products to stay away from ignition sources, which means that the users of the product should not smoke. If a spark or flame is present, they should not use this kind of sunscreen.

Consumers who have the recalled sunscreen products should not use them. They can contact Energizer in regards to the recall at Consumer Affairs at 1-800-SAFESUN (1-800-723-3786) Monday through Friday, 8:00AM to 7:00PM Eastern.
