Banana Boat Recalls Sunscreen Due to Fire Risk
Twenty three varieties of Banana Boat sunscreen are being voluntarily pulled from store shelves by the manufacturer of these products as five injuries from burns have been reported in the US and Canada this year. The spray valve is believed to be faulty, causing the product to be over applied. The product takes longer to dry with heavy application and thus remains flammable longer. The label warns consumers/users of the fire hazard of the product when still wet. Concerns about whether most people read use labels have been raised as well.
