Banana Boat recalls scalp spray with cancer risk

Sunscreen maker Banana Boat is recalling a scalp spray because it contains small amounts of benzene, a chemical that can cause cancer with repeated exposure.

Edgewell Personal Care announced the voluntary recall on Friday. It said benzene was detected in internal reviews of Banana Boat Hair and Scalp Spray SPF 30.

Backpacks of sprays are subject to the recall, with lot numbers 20016AF, 20084BF and 21139AF. Edgewell said no other batch of sprays and no other Banana Boat products are subject to the recall.

Edgewell did not say how many cans it is recalling. The Associated Press left a message with the company seeking comment.

Shelton, Connecticut-based Edgewell said it has not received any reports of adverse events related to the recall. The company has directed retailers to remove the spray from their shelves. It also offers to refund the customers who purchased the product.

The recall comes more than a year after Johnson & Johnson recalled five sunscreens because they were found to contain benzene. That recall includes Aveeno and Neutrogena products in aerosol cans.
