Johnson & Johnson Issues Recall of Neutrogena, Aveeno Sunscreens
Calendar icon July 15, 2021

Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc has issued a voluntary recall of 5 Neutrogena and Aveeno aerosol sunscreens after some products were found to have trace levels of benzene, a chemical that can cause cancer with repeated exposure.

The healthcare giant claims that while benzene is not an ingredient in any of their sunscreen products, it was detected in some samples of their finished aerosol sunscreen products. The affected products are as follows:

  • Neutrogena Beach Defense® aerosol sunscreen
  • Neutrogena Cool Dry Sport aerosol sunscreen
  • Neutrogena Invisible Daily™ defense aerosol sunscreen
  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer® aerosol sunscreen
  • Aveeno Protect + Refresh aerosol sunscreen.

Johnson & Johnson said they are working to actively remove the products from all retailer shelves nationwide. They have urged consumers to stop using the affected products immediately and discard them. For questions or to request a refund, Johnson & Johnson is asking consumers to contact the JJCI Customer Care Center by calling 1-800-458-1673. More product information can be found on the Neutrogena and Aveeno websites.

Cellino Law has extensive experience litigating against Johnson & Johnson on behalf of injured consumers including those suffering from ovarian cancer following exposure to Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Johnson & Johnson Shower to Shower, which have been shown by independent testing to have been contaminated with cancer-causing asbestos.

If you have been exposed to any of the affected Neutrogena or Aveeno products and have developed cancer as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Cellino Law today for your free case evaluation.

  • I want to thank your law firm for settling my lawsuit where others failed. You treated me with the utmost respect and care, because of your law firm the dream of owning my own home finally came true. For the first time in a long time, we're living out our dream home. Thank you a million times over. Thank you for making my dream come true.


  • Cellino Law was a great company to work with. From the beginning they came out and met with my uncle and myself and assured us that everything would be taken care of from beginning to end our lawyer state and constant contact with us to make sure that everything would go smoothly and it did. I would definitely recommend anybody to go to Cellino Law for whatever help they need. And specifically please ask for the lawyer that we had Mr. Alan Silverstein. He was amazing and his staff was always attentive. Please go with them for your next law needs.


  • I highly recommend Cellino Law to anyone involved in a car crash. I worked with Michael Lovecchio, and had a wonderful experience given the circumstances. He was very attentive, and got the best possible outcome I could have wanted.


  • Now that reality has set in, I want to thank you for all your work and assistance in obtaining my settlement for the pelvic mesh. This money will make my life so much easier in the future. Medicare just isn't sufficient. I know that I will have enough to live on. I truly appreciate of your efforts. Thank you!


  • Joe and I just wanted to send you this note thanking you for the professional way you handled our lawsuit. Your kindness was extremely appreciated in a very difficult time. When we found out the people that caused the accident had no insurance, we thought our chances of receiving any settlement was nonexistent. Once we met with you and released you were able to help us our minds were put at ease. Your aggressive manner of handling the case exceeded our expectations. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much and best wishes,

    Danielle and Joe
