Banana Boat Sunscreen Recalled Due To Fire Risk

News

If you visit the beach on the regular, you may want to pay close attention to this report.

KTLA News reports that Banana Boat Ultra Mist—a product that’s supposed to protect your skin from sunburn—is being recalled over reports from consumers who claimed to have been burned.

A press release from Energizer Holdings states that as many as four people claim to have been burned due to the Banana Boat mist formula. The problem lies in the design of the bottles, which the company says dispenses too much sunscreen.

As a result of the bottle dispensing more than is needed for continuous sun protection, it takes longer for the product to dry on the skin. This actually makes the consumer vulnerable if they come in contact with a flame or spark.

Retailers are being asked to stop selling the 23 products listed below:
