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.

  • Choosing the right attorney to represent you after an accident can make all the difference. This is no cliche. I recently experienced these words to live by first hand. After a tractor trailer rear ended me at high speed in 2017 I retained Allan Silverstein to handle my case. I quickly realized that bringing a lawsuit rapidly snowballs into a mountain of details that can make or break your results. Documents, case histories, doctor visits, bills, and lots of phone calls all need to be accurately kept track of if a successful outcome it to be attained. To complicate matters I reside in New York and the incident took place in New Jersey. Luckily, Allan was licensed in multiple states. I was fortunate to find Allan to handle this matter from the New York area. Armed with an accurate account of the facts Allan went to work on the difficult job of negotiating with the defending insurance company as well as my no fault carrier in order to obtain the best possible outcome for my set of circumstances. In a lawsuit communication is key and and events can be of a timely nature. Allan never failed to return my calls - usually the same day! He fought skillfully and respectfully to get me the best possible settlement. He is easy to deal with and a likeable down to earth guy. He always listened with compassion and respect to my issues. He guided me with objective understanding as well as a realistic analysis of the merits of my case. When we finally settled Allan got me a fair agreement beyond my expectations and negotiated with my doctors to make sure all my bills were paid. It was a great experience having Allan represent me. Quality work in any aspect of life is hard to find. Quality is what I got with Allan Silverstein. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.

  • 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.
