Banana Boat Sun Products Recalled over Fire Hazard

Following shocking consumer reports of sunscreen sprays catching fire, Energizer Holdings Inc. issued a recall of 23 Banana Boat UltraMist sunscreen products. There have been reports of five consumers who suffered from burns while using the products.

The sun protection products have been recalled from the market because of a potential risk of catching fire if a person's skin comes in contact with a flame or a spark before the spray dries.

Reuters writes that four cases of burns from the use of Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 30 and SPF 50 sunscreens in the United States have been reported as well as one in Canada. Energizer suspects that the bigger size of the spray valve opening dispenses more sunscreen than other products available in the markets.

Retailers have been notified to stop selling the recalled products until Energizer launches its new Banana Boat continuous spray products.
