During the summer, many people reach for spray sunscreen as a convenient way to stay safe from sunburns and skin damage, but this year you should check which brands are in your cabinet. Johnson & Johnson has issued a recall for five of its Neutrogena and Aveeno spray sunscreen product lines. The aerosol sprays have tested positive for low levels of benzene, which can potentially cause cancer.
On its website, the company stated, "Out of an abundance of caution, we are recalling all lots of these specific aerosol sunscreen products. While benzene is not an ingredient in any of our sunscreen products, it was detected in some samples of the impacted aerosol sunscreen finished products. We are investigating the cause of this issue, which is limited to certain aerosol sunscreen products."
Customers can get a refund by filling out an online form or calling J&J’s Consumer Care Center at 1-800-458-1673. Here are the sunscreens that have been recalled.
