Some Banana Boat Sunscreens Are Being Recalled After Benzene Detected
Calendar icon August 1, 2022

Edgewell Personal Care Company, manufacturer of the popular Banana Boat Hair & Scalp Sunscreen Spray, recalled multiple batches of their SPF 30 product after finding trace amounts of benzene, which is classified as a human carcinogen.

According to Edgwell’s press release, the recall affects various batches of the sunscreen which is packaged in aerosol cans. Their statement claims that benzene is not an ingredient used in the production of Banana Boat products and blames the propellant for containing the benzene. The propellant distributes the sunscreen itself from the aerosol can onto the skin.

The recalled batches were distributed across the United States and have expiration dates of December 2022, February 2023, and April 2024. If consumers have products with the listed expiration dates and have lot codes 20016AF, 20084BF, and 21139AF, Edgewell recommends that they stop using and dispose of the product immediately.

  • Thank you for your help in settling the case of my father's accident. I could always count on you to answer my questions honestly and in terms I could understand. If all lawyers at Cellino Law are like you, I understand why they are an A-1 law firm.


  • Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I am very pleased (and surprised) at the amount of the settlement. We will use the funds to help pay down the debt on the truck we had to purchase after ours was totaled. Thank you again.


  • 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!


  • This letter is to thank Ms. Diane D’Andrea, assistant to Mr. George Gridelli, Attny for all the hard work, dedication, and attentiveness she showed during the representation of my case. She was always cheerful and ready to help in whatever way she could. All messages left for Mr. Gridelli were always relayed and Mr. Gridelli always promptly returned our calls. She was a very competent assistant. Cellino Law has proven to be a model of what legal representation should be. Throughout the 6 ½ years of this case, I have heard many horror stories from people with “bad lawyer stories.” We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have chosen Cellino Law and will always recommend you to those looking for good, honest representation with a personal touch.
