Banana Boat Sun Care Products Recalled After Reports of Burns

After at least 5 reports of burn injuries, Energizer Holdings, Inc. and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have announced the voluntary recall of 23 Banana Boat UltraMist sun care products. Four consumers in America and one in Canada have reported incidents involving various Banana Boat products and now the company that manufactures these popular sun screens, lotions and sprays has admitted that there is potential for a person’s skin to actually catch on fire from using them.

According to Energizer’s press release, the company is initiating this recall because of an issue in the delivery system of the products, meaning that the spray nozzles, spray valves and caps release too much of the sun care product, which requires more time to dry. In the meantime, if a person is exposed to an incendiary source, his or her skin could actually ignite, causing very serious burns. In response to these reported incidents, Energizer has stated:

“Consumer safety is the primary objective of Energizer and therefore it has voluntarily initiated this market withdrawal.  As already described, Energizer believes it has identified the cause of this safety concern and expects to offer new Banana Boat continuous spray products shortly.”

While the products in question are believed to have been manufactured and sold between January 2010 and September 2012, Energizer and the FDA are encouraging anyone using Banana Boat products to first determine whether or not their sun care items are included in this recall before continuing use. Retailers have been notified by Energizer to cease sales of the items and consumers can direct their questions and concerns to Energizer’s consumer affairs division at (800) 723-3786.
