The company Johnson & Johnson is recalling some of its sunscreen products after samples were found to contain low levels of benzene, a chemical that can cause cancer with repeated exposure.
Aveeno Protect + Refresh aerosol sunscreen, and four Neutrogena sunscreen versions: Beach Defense aerosol sunscreen, CoolDry Sport aerosol sunscreen, Invisible Daily Defense aerosol sunscreen and UltraSheer aerosol sunscreen are the products that are being recalled.
According to the company the products were distributed nationwide through retailers, and it is investigating how the chemical got into the products.
Johnson & Johnson is urging consumers to stop using the sunscreens immediately and said customers can get a refund by calling J&J’s Consumer Care Center at 1-800-458-1673. More information is available at the websites for Neutrogena and Aveeno.
