The maker of Banana Boat sunscreen has expanded the recall of some of its spray-on products sold in Canada and the U.S.
Energizer Holdings Canada says there is a possibility that these sunscreens could ignite on the skin if the consumer comes into contact with an open flame or spark before the spray has completely dried.
One such case has been reported in Canada and four in the U.S.
The company is warning consumers not to use any of the five Energizer Personal Care products with the UPC codes, listed below, and to verify that all stored-sunscreens at cabins, travel-bags, etc. are not affected by this recall.
The recall was first announced on October 19th.
At that time, there were two continuous spray Banana Boat sun care products affected: Banana Boat Ultra Defense SPF 60 Spray, 180mL and Banana Boat Sport Performance SPF 60 Spray, 180mL.
The original recall has been expanded to include two additional Banana Boat products: Banana Boat Sport Performance SPF 30 Spray Sunscreen, 180mL and Banana Boat Ultra Defense SPF 30 Spray Sunscreen, 180mL. A fifth affected product, which was previously sold in Canada, has also been identified: Banana Boat Sunscreen Oil Spray SPF 15.
