Canadian Recalls: Banana Boat Spray Sunscreen

Banana Boat/Energizer is pulling two types of continuous spray Banana Boat sun care products from stores across Canada – Banana Boat Ultra Defense Spray Sunscreen and Banana Boat Sport Performance Spray Sunscreen.

Energizer who own the Banana Boat label says there is a “potential risk of product igniting on the skin if contact is made with a source of ignition before the product is completely dry.”  There are five cases of users catching on fire, four in the US and one in Canada.

The products were sold nationally from January, 2010, through Sept. 20, 2012.

If you shopped in the US, the list is much longer, view it here.

Consumers who purchased the products are being told not to use them. More information is available from the manufacturer at 1-888-SUN-TIPS (1-888-786-8477) Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET. or by sending an email to: [email protected].

    Just another way that smoking is hazardous to your health.

    But shouldn’t this be common sense? A lot of products are flammable until they dry… nail polish, nail polish remover, mosquito repellent, hand sanitizer, alcohol, hairspray, oils, many products from spray bottles when they create a vapour.

      Should be, but an official recall should be for more than common sense – maybe *more* easily igniteable – either way, sunscreen doesn’t last long so if you bought too much and want a refund 😉

    Right on, Minou. I remember seeing it on the news in the summer – one guy got burned after spraying it on, then lighting a BBQ.
