Coppertone is voluntarily recalling twelve lots of Coppertone aerosol sunscreen spray products distributed nationwide due to the presence of benzene in these lots of products.
The products have a manufactured date between the dates of January 10, 2021 and June 15, 2021 to the consumer level.
The voluntarily recalled sunscreen spray products are packaged in aerosol cans. Consumers should stop using these specific Coppertone aerosol sunscreen spray products and dispose of them appropriately.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we are recalling certain lots of these specific aerosol sunscreen spray products. To date, Coppertone has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall,” said the company in the recall.
Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen. Exposure to benzene can occur through inhalation, oral, and skin and it could, depending on the level and extent of exposure, result in an increased risk of cancers including leukemia, and blood cancer of the bone marrow and other blood disorders which can be life-threatening.
Daily exposure to benzene at the levels detected in these affected Coppertone aerosol sunscreen spray products would not be expected to cause adverse health consequences based on generally accepted exposure modeling by numerous regulatory agencies.
